Thanks for your link, it was an interesting read (along with the referenced
article). It appears this if-istype/else technique is widely employed when
needing a non-intrusive Visitor, when one cannot modify original hierarchy
API (even tho I can modify it I still prefer the nonintrusive version as I
find the action of needing to visit the hierarchy a decision of the user and
not a feature for the hierarchy to provide it).

So the logic of finding the type liniarly can be rewritten in my code to use
boost::mpl features as from the link provided. Even so, if boost does not
have such a generic Visitor feature, wouldn't it be a good addition?
