oh! i was assuming that the name was "given" during the registration to
the factory (of types). it is possible to de-mangle c++ types. great!
you'll explain how.

btw, "10 screenshots + gimp" was not the answer i expected from you :-) 
i'm sure it can be done with a screencast (i.e. recordmydesktop) and two
commands; one for splitting video to pictures (avidemux does it) and
another to build up the .gif (but don't know how)
