--- Comment #1 from Hans Wennborg <hans at chromium.org> ---
> It seems like MSVC first invokes SP::operator T*() and then invokes the ctor taking the T* from it, which requires another implicit conversion from D* to B*.  I don't think this is valid C++, but we may want to support it for compat with MSVC.

I'm surprised that they allow that (it seems to compile with the 14 CTP too).
Unless we really can't avoid it, I don't think we should support this.

For smart pointers, I think the common thing to do is to provide templates for
converting copy constructors and assignment operators, something like:

template <typename T> SP {
  template <typename U> SP(SP<U> other) { ... }
  template <typename U> void operator=(SP<U> other);

I'll mark this wontfix for now.
