Once you start writing significantly sized software automatic conversions are the last thing you want. It's a mine field of errors waiting to happen, IMO.

As is often the case in line, you can sort of pick one, easy or good. You can't really have both unless it's a fairly modest undertaking. When it gets serious, the old saying of measure twice, cut once really applies. The time you spend being very specific to the compiler about what you want to happen will save you endless woe.

This is one of the things that really makes me shake my head at modern C++ where people are using 'auto' all over the place.
