I got even better results for switch with Visual Studio, but on Linux gcc
4.3.2, i am getting almost equal values for both. But we can say for sure
that Boost Variant is not as fast as the direct function call. . That's why
i am requesting a feature to allow limited functionality of templates
inside the virtual functions.
