Yes, it was a quick hack to see if it could work.

After further thoughts along those lines:

I think the best would be to have a reusable "(typed) argument list"
structure, around which the factories can be built as free functions (or we
could have a generic apply taking the argument list and a functor, so every
factory will just become a different functor).
Moreover, once the argument list is decoupled from the factory, it could be
interoperable with fusion, enabling more freedom in how they are used.

man. The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the onlooker and calls
that self-confidence. The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eyes and
calls that humbleness.
