1654. Literal types and constexpr defaulted constructors

Section: 6.8  [basic.types]     Status: dup     Submitter: Richard Smith     Date: 2013-04-20

The requirement in 6.8 [basic.types] that a literal type must have a constexpr constructor has caused signficant problems with respect to defaulted default constructors, since the determination of whether a constructor is constexpr depends on its definition and a defaulted special member function is only defined if it is odr-used. It might be better to remove that requirement, at least as it applies to defaulted default constructors.

Rationale (September, 2013):

This issue duplicates issue 1360.
