// These are some basic macros for making down-casting safer in Objective C.
// They are loosely based on the same cast types with similar names in C++.
// A typical usage would look like this:
//
// Bar* b = [[Bar alloc] init];
// Foo* a = GTM_STATIC_CAST(Foo, b);
//
// Note that it's GTM_STATIC_CAST(Foo, b) and not GTM_STATIC_CAST(Foo*, b).
//
// GTM_STATIC_CAST runs only in debug mode, and will assert if and only if:
// - object is non nil
// - [object isKindOfClass:[cls class]] returns nil
//
// otherwise it returns object.
//
// GTM_DYNAMIC_CAST runs in both debug and release and will return nil if
// - object is nil
// - [object isKindOfClass:[cls class]] returns nil
//
// otherwise it returns object.
//
// Support functions for dealing with casting.
