I read his message. I don't see any prove there just a statement from
the standard that doesn't prove anything.

My first question what does "reusing storage" really mean?
How is the process of "reusing storage" defined?

The second issue is if look at my solution, you won't see
any so called non-POD bitwise copying.

I repeat it again all my code is doing is copying one char[]
to another char[]. Both variables have been allocated
as char[] originally there is not any casting going on.

How else can I prove it?
