The following program shows that wrapping a simple class around a function
pointer costs important optimizations.  If you change the #if 1 to #if 0,
you'll see that the call is completely optimized away.  

#if 1
struct pf
  inline pf(int(*x)(int)) : x(x) {}

  inline int operator()(int a) const
    return x(a);

  int (*x)(int);
typedef int(*pf)(int);

inline int g(int x) { return x/x - 1; }

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
  pf f(g);
  return f(3);
