Boost :

I need something similar to variant to optimize dynamic dispatches in my
application much like what GIL uses. Unfortunately one of my target
platforms does not support RTTI.

How much does variant rely on the facilities of RTTI?

Is it reasonable/possible to consider replacing RTTI to remove that
dependency? I had to add a BOOST_NO_RTTI config macro locally several
months ago in order to use lexical_cast. Perhaps RTTI could be used
conditionally based on something similar.
