Of course there is. You snipped the part of my previous message where
I quoted the section that says the mapping performed by
reinterpret_cast is implementation-defined! Wiping out the public

creative argumentation technique, but somehow I don't think it's going
to fool too many people. In today's world, archives are forever:
