Inlined virtuals will cause an instantiation of the vtable and the
function bodies in _every_ compilation unit the header file is
included into (ref. Scott Meyers "More Effective C++", Item 24 pp
This is a size cost that can be easily avoided.
I'm also coming more and more to the conclusion that even trivial
non-virtual function bodies should not be inlined, _unless_ there is a
clear performance reason to do so.
This is because even trivial inlined function occasinally needs to be
changed and changing something in a headerfile causes recompilation.
