A recent thread in spirit.general NG suggested to me the need for
a 'tagged variant' extension to boost::variant in order to emulate
the tagged-union mentioned in this post in the thread:
A prototype of such an extension is available in variant_tagged.zip
Use of the variant_tagged could be used whenever non-string processing
is required in a spirit parser. Each tag in the using corresponds to
a token-id and each value associated with that token-id is the attribute
for that token-id. This closely emulates the way yacc does it, IIRC,
except it just uses a union and the tag is somehow "implicit".
Is there any interest in using this in spirit or boost in general?
