fmtlib looks pretty cool. In fact it's basically a superset of my private
library. Some of the design decisions aren't the same but the overall style
is very similar.

It does, of course, parse the format string, but I'm not sure what you mean
by "choose function dynamically." The above basically does something like

    os << "The answer is ";
    os << 42;
    return os.str();

using one virtual call for the os << 42 part.
