Sorry, I guess "on the stack" isn't the exactly correct response. The point
is though that in general variant does *not* allocate on the heap.
A good conceptual way to think about the internals of a variant<T1,...,TN>
is as follows:
template <typename T1, ..., typename TN>
Of course, the actual implementation is necessarily far more complicated.
However, the above *does* convey the basic storage allocation scheme.
