Tobias Schwinger's Boost.Functional/Factory library was accepted into
boost last year
(, but I don't
think it has made it to trunk yet (I think you can get it from the
vault). This library provides functional object adapters for both
dynamic allocation of objects as well as value-based construction.

I have found it relatively straightforward to use this library in
concert with Boost.Function and Boost.Bind to construct simple factory
classes that can allocate objects based on provided keys. If that's
the sort of factory you are looking for, I recommend Tobias's library.

Kind regards,
