// This works

function TestIsAs2<T: TObject>(Item: TObject): T;
  if Item is T then
    Exit(Item as T);
  Result := nil;

Now before you say "of course" :) I find it interesting because is and as
are operators, just like > greater than and < less than are operators. In
previous examples no constraints were needed to use operators.

Having said that, I am find with being forced to use a constraint with "as"
and "is", because they are operators which cannot be overloaded.

Good work!
