I spotted this while reading dejagnu.h. There is no need to provide
additional methods that peform the same runtime type conversion that
C++ does for us.  OK to commit?

What revision of C++ added those runtime type conversions? Is it plausible that any projects out there might be using an older C++ version? Could there be a compiler out there that does not do those conversions on function calls even though it should?

What, if any, harm does having these unneeded functions do?
