Let me clarify what I meant by that a bit more.

I see this as a conflict of wills between the generic and OO type
systems. I see boost::any as a paradigm shifter. We use both OO
concepts and some generic concepts in our code base and at times it
isn't obvious when the switch between the two paradigms occurs.

I believe the above code is shifting between the paradigms in a
subtle way.
