Generally frowned upon, but handy some of the time. Maybe C needs an
up_cast() operator? :-) Given that, and requiring it, would allow
the optimizer to do what it does best, almost all the time, and the 2
lines per million that need up_cast, could use it.
Also, it would seem to me that Ada and Java probably have upcast, and
that the back end has to work for them too... I just don't know if
they would trip over it.
