And I suppose if it's not an int, it throws?
For proprieties, it might be better to provide lexical conversion to the
target type, so that it always succeeds (modulo allocation errors).
Anyway, I'm not too sure this is very useful.
It's just a std::map<std::string, some_variant_type>. Does that really
deserve its own class?
