yes, a lot of these things could be improved by replacing dynamic_cast
with new virtual functions; there is a lot of ancient code apparently
written by dyed-in-the-wool C/Pascal programmers that had trouble with
object oriented things.

by the way, Armin's aw080 branch over at AOO(i) removes tools/rtti.hxx
completely, though nobody has any idea when the _other_ enormous
refactorings in there will be finished....
