In the case of multiple inheritance

class A{
...
};

class B{
...
};

class C:
 public A,
 public B{

 int func()const;
};


I wish func to be able to change data members derived via class A but not those derived via class B.

I would like to say

class C:
 mutable public A,
 public B{

but this is illegal.

What is the best solution which achieves what I want?
