Yes and no. [D]COM[++], which is not C++, also uses virtual tables for
in-process objects and in-process object stubs. (stubs are used where
the obejct doesn't directly implement an in-process capability, or it's
being invoked remotely).
However, AFAIK (not an expert) that shouldn't be an issue for us, as all
COM linking is done at run-time, not statically...
