No -- I meant variables_map to be the primary interface. However, I think that
in your case, the only drawback is extra lines in the code. Or there's
something else?

This depends on your definition of validator. Is that's a function to check
that the value is withing valid range, or something like that, you can use

If you want to customize the parsing, the current way is:

1. Declare some class derived from typed_value<YourType> and override the
'parse' method.

2. Specialize the 'value' function to return instance of your type.
