Hi Everyone,

Is there interest in a runtime dynamic index driven dispatch library
here? The concept of the library is a bit simple, and is somewhat
related to the Boost.Signals library -- but different in intent.

Basically the main component of the library is a dynamic callback
registry/dispatcher object which maintains callback references to
nullary free functions and nullary functors. To illustrate how the
library is intended to be used, the following code snippets have been

//set up a registry
dispatch::dispatcher<void (), int> callbacks;

// register a nullary free function f to index 0
callbacks[0] = f;

// bind arguments to a single argument function p to index 1
callbacks[1] = boost::bind(p, 1);

// get user input then execute appropriate callback
int i;
cin >> i;

Feedback would be most appreciated.

Thanks and have a great day everyone!
