True, but this relies on "b" being a virtual class.
The case I had was very simple, purposely so.
While for complex objects, passing them could be a disaster,
in this case it is a simple clean construction that is useful.
I'm working on porting approximately a million lines
of code (which also must remain working on the original
platform), and the pun (using a struct/class containing a
single data member which is a pointer to char, and not
containing a vtab) is pervasive throughout. It would be
really nice if I didn't have to do thousands of changes
Format("%s", (char *)Object));
