That instantiates the template twice, maybe it'll affect compile times.
Also, I'm a bit cautious about using an array type in template
parameters - maybe it'll cause trouble on ancient compilers?
I guess, I could extract all members other than 'data' to a separate
union and then:
mutable function_buffer_members m;
mutable char data[sizeof(function_buffer_members)];
This would require more modifications to the code though.
(Sigh... if only we could inherit unions...)
