I was wondering, why is overloading operator. (period) forbidden? It
would make a few odd applications possible (dynamic inheritance and
transparent remote method invocation spring to my mind) and it would
be fairly generic. The only sidecase I can see is that operator.
itself would not be looked up through operator. .
I read that there was previous debate on the subject, but I haven't
been able to find why it was rejected.
