The existing version of boost::any has the same limitation. If you make rtti
info local to dynamic libraries, you won't be able to extra data from any in
one dynamic library if it was put in in another.

I personally don't consider this to be a limitation. If you want to be
resilient to any kind of dynamic library barriers, you can't even use
