+Given an implicit conversion C1 that converts from a type S to a type
+T1, and an implicit conversion C2 that converts from a type S to a
+type T2, the better conversion of the two conversions is determined as
+If an implicit conversion from T1 to T2 exists, and no implicit
+conversion from T2 to T1 exists, C1 is the better conversion.
+If an implicit conversion from T2 to T1 exists, and no implicit
+conversion from T1 to T2 exists, C2 is the better conversion. 
+The implicit numeric conversions are:
+ From byte to short, ushort, int, uint, long, ulong, float, double, or
+ From short to int, long, float, double, or decimal.
+a imp. conv. from byte -> short exists, but not short -> byte.
+Therefore, by the `Better Conversion' function, the `byte' method is
