Subject: [boost] Multi-methods and type switch

SoC2014 page on trac mentions interest for an implementation of type-switch
for C++.

For now, I have implemented a toy library for open multiple dispatch. It is
based on compressed dispatch tables. It still just supports single inheritance
and needs to attach integer tags to the dispatched class hierarchy.

Is there any interest for further development of this library ? What would be
the typical use cases ?

Note : Although I opened with a reference to SoC2014, I do not intend to write
a GSoC proposal for this work.

Best regards,

Camille Gillot
