Boost.PtrContainer is one example. Boost.Circular Buffer is another.
Boost.Unordered a third. Boost.BiMap yet another (it's a very powerful
and convenient wrapper of Boost.Intrusive).

Compared to function pointers and Bridge pattern this approach is much easier. And for semi-discretisation, a pde coefficient like f(x,y,z,t) transforms to F(t) when the special mesh is used (using Bind).

No, there are they are as general as normal containers, but requires
more care to apply due to the requiremnt of reference stability. They
can provide major speedups for normal applications too.
