Hi all,

   having a night asleep due to jet lag I have hacked another object
factory code.

Download from Boost Vault or directly with:

This new object factory is IMHO much more powerful and has a much
better design then the previous one.

It is based on complete different ideas and has all the features of
the previous one with added implicit argument conversions, so that
asking the factory for an object now mimics 100% what you would have
calling the object c'tor directly.

It is an integration of the new 'overload' utility with Tobias
boost::factory (get from Vault)

As 'overload' utility I used mine (original code by Joel) not Marco
Cecchetti' s one because I only needed a very trimmed down version, I
have trimmed down also mine that was already very small !!

There are no stored variables or member data anywhere. The factory
itsef is just a bunch of typedefs and few static member functions.

I think code is small and nice for the task and further polishing
could be expected.

Previous code has been retired from Boost Vault to
not pollute the namespace ;-)
