No, it's something different that currently just lives on my hard
disk.  The code is somewhat messy, and may be of little use for
others right now.  But I'm about to start working on the

The approach is nothing really fancy.  It contains a simple type
system, to model primitives, classes and parametric types, a graph to
"draw" the conversions and a lookup (currently Dijkstra's shortest
path algorithm) to find a conversion path.

Once I've got the basic documentation in place I'll put it up
somewhere, and gladly drop you a note.
