 Under .NET the last line (converting from B to I) does _not_ compile. 
 Under Mono it does.
 In .NET 1.1 it _did_ compile but after I queried it with Peter Hallam he 
 confirmed it was a bug.
 As far as I can tell the spec needs tightening to cover this case.
+------- Additional Comments From martin at ximian.com  2006-06-22 06:22 -------
+Could we please get some precise information on when to allow/disallow
+these conversions ?
+As I understand this, we shouldn't allow any user-defined implicit
+conversions when converting from something to an interface type ?
+See also the annotation in the Annotated C#'s clause 17.9.3.
