The object I presented compiles well, but there is almost no gain in OO approach: I still have to nest structures and write lots of properties, inheritance does not help.

I'm vague: for the first time I hoped that when you access the variant part, if the "case" variable was named, program checks it run-time. Hoping that it was implemented this way, I asked about control over the relative place in the memory of that named variable. Oh, well, there are no run-time checks, so that's all...
