The only thing you can determine, is, if the type (class) of the last
declaration is the
one you expected. That means if you know that the first declaration of
your function
comes in from baseT, you can determine if a deriving class overwrites that
and that is exactly what a deriving class needs to do to overload a
virtual function.

I myself use this pattern to determine, if a type is an XPCOM Interface or
not. Perhaps
you'd like to check for something similiar.

If interested in details, let me know.

This is not the same, and there is no way to do that as far as I know.
