It's unpleasant, but you can do BaseInterfaceA::something() and
BaseInterfaceB::something() from inside a multiply-derived class. The C
++ compiler would generally force you to do that by complaining that
just something() is ambiguous.

I would avoid it, but it's likely to happen for some regular methods
already. How does Java handle that?
