I've written a binding mechanism (basically intended for XML) for
class members to be able to serialize members of a class by a generic
mechanism of its base class. The binding initializing part looks like

     // instance, member, default value, isAttribute
     xml::bind(this, _firstName, std::string(""), true);
     xml::bind(this, _age, int(0), true);

The issue I'm not happy with is the fact that on each creation of such
an instance the base of the person class is storing the binding
infomations. I would like to be able to define a central binding for
the class person (btw: actually a derived class simply adds bindings).

Is this possible and could someone please give a simple example?

I don't know if this is really what you're trying to do, but you might
