function pointers slow?

Im working on this OpenGL wrapper class, and am thinking of making function pointers to all opengl functions. Is this going to slow down the calls? I mean will it be faster to call the gl functions directly instead?

Heres some code to make it a bit more clear of what i mean:

class COpenGL

void (__stdcall *Vertex3f)(GLfloat x, GLfloat y, GLfloat z);

Vertex3f = glVertex3f;

COpenGL gl;
gl.Vertex3f(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);

    Compared to the amount of work each GL function performs, the cost of looking up the value of a class variable is minimal.

    Unless you're planning changing which GL function to call at run-time, then direct calling is the obvious thing?
