there is type defined as boost::variant<std::string,int,double,bool,std::pair<std::string,struct N>.
When constructing a std::vector of above defined type as following
auto values = (boost::assign::list_of<value_t>("Motor",5,1,2.0,"Russian chassis")).values_container();
there's the warning issued by the compiler coersing char* into bool.
