[Voted into WP at March, 2010 meeting.]

Proposed resolution (October, 2009):

Change 12.2.4.3 [over.ics.rank] paragraph 4 bullet 1 as follows:

  • A conversion that is not a conversion of does not convert a pointer, or a pointer to member, or std::nullptr_t to bool is better than another conversion that is such a conversion one that does.

Conversion of a pointer or pointer to member to bool is given special treatment as a tiebreaker in overload resolution in 12.2.4.3 [over.ics.rank] paragraph 4, bullet 1:

  • A conversion that is not a conversion of a pointer, or pointer to member, to bool is better than another conversion that is such a conversion.

It would be reasonable to expect a similar provision to apply to conversions of std::nullptr_t to bool.
