2449. Thunks as an implementation technique for pointers to virtual functions

Section:  [expr.unary.op]     Status: extension     Submitter: John McCall     Date: 2020-06-03

Although there are implementations that use thunks for pointers to virtual member functions, it appears that such a technique is not permitted by the Standard. Concerns particularly include the requirements for complete types for parameter and return types at the point at which the member function pointer is formed.
