I just realized my email might have sounded a bit harsh, sorry about
this, wasn't my intention.

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).

So it's for unified storage, and not the semi-discretisation itself. I'm
just curious whether you could avoid the type erasure.

They're especially useful for system-level programming because you deal
with the allocation and storage of the objects yourself, but of course
their application isn't restrained to systems.
