1303. C language linkage for template with internal linkage

Section: Clause 13  [temp]     Status: NAD     Submitter: Johannes Schaub     Date: 2011-04-23

There doesn't seem to be a good reason for prohibiting C language linkage for function templates with internal linkage, and that could be useful in implementations where the calling convention of a function is determined by its language linkage.

Rationale (August, 2011):

The specification is as desired.
