I must be missing something, either technical about the language itself
or about the present discussion: I don't see how would be correct
picking the second 'f'; ambiguity seems also wrong. My reasoning is
that, according to the current C++ standard, we have a constructor from
a pair of doubles, each one *with a default*: the first f, by itself
certainly works. Then, we add a *non-standard* constructor, from
__complex__ double, and... boomer! it gets *preferred*!?! Please explain
in better detail.
Thanks in advance,
