Ha! I /knew/ it! MS is totally not adhering to "the standard" *rant* *rant*...

Okay, you got me there, I never actually tried it myself, even though unit-testing private methods was also the first thing which came to my mind as being very useful when I learnt this Evil Trick here on qt-interest (I think).

The context was a similar one: trying pointer arithmetic, iterating over virtual function tables, casting... until someone just came up with this #define thing. At that time the simplicity and elegance just blew my mind - C++ rocks! It just gave me a rocket launcher to shot into my foot! ;)

I am pretty sure that even the naming might be overcome with a little #define wizardry, no? ;)
