Well, if the (member) (function) pointers are available at compile
time they can be inlined away so that using them becomes more

Suppose I want to write serialization code? Can you
serialize/deserialize with a runtime-only framework?

Add a char const* const parameter? Have an additional parallel array
of names?

By name? By reverse-indexing whatever structure answers the previous
question, of course!
