This is an unofficial snapshot of the ISO/IEC JTC1 SC22 WG21 Core Issues List revision 112e. See http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/ for the official list.
According to 11.4.5 [class.ctor] paragraph 1, the syntax used in declaring a constructor allows at most one function-specifier. It is thus not permitted to declare a constructor both inline and explicit. This seems overly restrictive.
On a related note, there doesn't seem to be any explicit prohibition against member functions with the same name as the class. (Such a prohibition might reasonably be expected to occur in 11.4 [class.mem] paragraph 13, but member functions are not listed there.)
One possible interpretation would be that such member functions would violate the restrictions in 6.4.7 [basic.scope.class] paragraph 1, because the class name would refer to the class at some points in the class scope and to the member function at others. However, this seems a bit tenuous. Is an explicit prohibition needed?
(See also issue 147.)
Proposed resolution (10/00):
Add to 11.4 [class.mem] paragraph 13
- every member function of class T [Note: this restriction does not apply to constructors, which do not have names (11.4.5 [class.ctor]). ];
immediately following the line
- every data member of class T;
