Please apologize my tenacity but the C standard defines intptr_t to be
the same size as a pointer. This is defined in "cstdint" so
consequently we could use:

struct Silly
    bool is_from(const char* p)
       return !std::less<intptr_t>()(reinterpret_cast<intptr_t>(p),
reinterpret_cast<intptr_t>(buffer)) &&
reinterpret_cast<intptr_t>(buffer + sizeof(buffer)));

    char buffer[1024];
