Well my very initial plan was to develop an object factory ;-)

Then I realized I could use your dispatcher as core dispatching
mechanism, but it lacked multi-signature that is mandatory for a
factory that should be able to call all the c'tor of an object on user

So my plans were to add multi-signature to dispatcher, then, thanks to
Joel and Marco this 'overload' project was borne and grown

So now the next steps could be:

- Use overload in dispatcher

- Use dispatcher in object factory, and see if there is space to use
also the Tobias one, that allows a custom allocator, as example
instead of the c'tor wrappers functors, i.e. the functions that will
be registered with 'overload'.

But my problem is that I'll leave next week for a very long business
travel to China and Far east and I will be not able to dedicate time
to this project for probably one month or more.

I already just use spare time for this, and my spare time will be
veeeery small in the next weeks.

So, thanks Dean, I will surely ask you to be added to Sourceforge, but
it has no meaning to do it now.
