Yes. But, as I said, here it's a matter of *how* do you do the conversion. As
to doing it with reinterpret_cast, 5.2.10/1 says:

   "Conversions that can be performed explicitly using reinterpret_cast
    are listed below. No other conversion can be performed explicitly
    using reinterpret_cast."

Where is it listed that you can do a conversion to void*?
