#11922: Rev f4a61d breaks introduces ambiguity.
 Reporter: layus | Owner: johnmaddock
     Type: Bugs | Status: new
Milestone: To Be Determined | Component: multiprecision
  Version: Boost 1.60.0 | Severity: Regression
 Keywords: |
 The following code used to work before 1.60.

 #include <memory>
 #include <boost/multiprecision/cpp_int.hpp>
 typedef boost::multiprecision::cpp_int mp_int;

 class Int {
     Int(const mp_int& i) {};
     Int(const Int& i) = delete;

 int main() {
     mp_int i(10);
     std::shared_ptr<Int> p = std::make_shared<Int>(i + 10);
     return 0;

 But the changes introduced by the following commit, merged into
 boost-1.60.0, breaks it.
 The compiler cannot pick the constructor because there is some ambiguity.
 (i.e. "call of overloaded ‘Int(...)’ is ambiguous")

     Add explicit conversion operators and tests to expression templates.


 I must admit I am not even sure why there is ambiguity, but since the only
 way to call Int(const Int&) is to call Int(const mp_int&) first to get an
 Int there should be no ambiguity for the compiler here.
