Ok, let it be dynamic_any. Here is only one mirror problem. Three words in
dynamic_any_cast while all others known (to me) casts consist of two words:
static_cast, reinterpret_cast, dynamic_cast, any_cast, lexical_cast,
numeric_cast and so on.
I'd like to get responces about operators == and != for dynamic_any and
using of std::set<dynamic_any> and std::map<dynamic_any, value_type>. How
often they were simulated and how successully? Your responces can help to
understand real need of these features.
