I see the performance issues with multiple inheritance. Also, I'm not sure
about the significance of multiple inheritance, i.e., I don't know the
relative number of problems where it could help.

Are there any design patterns / best practices for cases actually involving
multiple inheritance? Practical problems include the implementation of
ontologies or reasoning about UML models (the UML Meta-model makes heavy
use of multiple inheritance. Hey, Osvaldo, are you still on the list?).
