Yes. More precisely, all supertype_I's and function_buffer's members
would map to the same storage, and supertype_I's members would be
syntactically addressed as if those were members of function_buffer
(i.e. similarly how it is with structs and classes).
The above function_buffer definition could be written as:
union function_buffer : public function_buffer_base
mutable char data[sizeof(function_buffer_base)];
and members of function_buffer and function_buffer_base could be
fb.obj_ptr = ...;
fb.data = ...;
