have you ever used protected and private inheritance?

All the time. Public is for the public parts of the interface to the class. The others are for the internal implementation details -- the parts we want to be free to rewrite and refactor without consequence. In my experience, a bigger public interface to a class means tighter coupling over time since other developers don't have to think very carefully about how their usage tightens the coupling, so they don't and just go ahead and use it.
