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.
[Picked up by evolution group at October 2002 meeting.](See also paper J16/99-0005 = WG21 N1182.)
At the London meeting, 126.96.36.199 [class.copy.ctor] paragraph 31 was changed to limit the optimization described to only the following cases:
Can we find an appropriate description for the desired cases?
Rationale (04/99): The absence of this optimization does not constitute a defect in the Standard, although the proposed resolution in the paper should be considered when the Standard is revised.
Note (March, 2008):
The Evolution Working Group has accepted the intent of this issue and referred it to CWG for action (not for C++0x). See paper J16/07-0033 = WG21 N2173.
Notes from the June, 2008 meeting:
The CWG decided to take no action on this issue until an interested party produces a paper with analysis and a proposal.
This is an extension that needs a paper targeted at EWG.
