Ah, yes, but I was disputing whether you had solved the puzzle! :-)
I would certainly agree that the question is purely academic.
To be fair, however, I think that the puzzle should include at least
the following rules: any solution must
- work for any strictly conforming program;
- allow separate compilation;
- not cause memory leaks.
Unfortunately including these conditions makes the puzzle unsolveable, IMHO :-(.
(We seem to have strayed away from serious compiler buisiness.
Follow-ups to comp.lang.c++).
