Recently the virtual-method (106) tag was created. It should be merged with virtual-functions (385) tag. The virtual-functions tag is more general and it is the older one, but should it be the one to live on? This seems disputable as I haven't heard of a virtual function which is not a method.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
Every virtual function is a method and every virtual method is a function. That's why they should be synonyms.
"Virtual function" seems to be the expression used more commonly (Google gives 670000 vs. 260000 hits), so probably it would be the appropriate main tag.
