Yep. I believe that it's rare, but in any case assertion is in place.

No. exec is static member function. I'm pretty sure that its address can
be used to initialize regular function pointer, and that it's portable
and guaranteed by C++ standard. Futhermore, I'm quite sure that type you
mention is not applicable to static members of class.
