Given that this is similar to one of the ways that I use any and part of
its original intent (and I believe it was discussed on the list this way
back when), I am naturally inclined to agree that it's a good idea ;-)

This is basic layering, keeping concerns separate, and requires no
changes to the any class per se. This facility can be made on a
customised, per-application basis, or a standard/common approach can be
formalised as a Boost library layered on top of any. Based on your
previous work in this area, do you or anyone else have any interest in
working on this?
