Hi Giuseppe,

I'm still hoping to see a strongly typed C++ heterogeneous container that
doesn't enforce base classes on elements, and one that doesn't use type
erasure and dynamic typecasting. IMO it's straightforward to construct a
heterogeneous container using

boost::variant like std::vector< boost::variant<unsigned, std::string> > hc;

So perhaps you can explain what your library does different and better?
