does the library need something that runtime-polymorphism delivers and that
cannot be done with templates? Not that I'm such a big fan of templates, but
they proved useful. Maybe not that much in domain-specific applications, but
in interface part of many libraries they work pretty well (Boost is good
example here). I'd also argue that they usually proved more extensible than
libraries designed around OOP.
