I might be wrong about this, and dont have time to look it up right now.

So perhaps the correct fix is to change my first patch, and return
UserCast instead of BoxedCast.

+At most 3 conversions:
+ - A (optional) standard implicit conversion from source to source'
+ - the actual user defined implicit conversion from source' to target'
+ - A (optional) standard implicit conversion from target' to target
+The second approach is wrong.
+A conversion from 'int' to 'decimal' is a standard implicit numerical
+conversion. A BoxedCast seems terribly wrong since both 'int' and
+'decimal' are value types. An UserCast is even more terribly wrong.
