Well, this is how we (that mean the legacy from Jeff, too) do it in XFC. 
I am not sure why virtual methods are a poor substitute for interfaces, 
but that is another discussion, the important part is that it provide 
polymorph behavior :-)

XFC uses libsigc++ for signals, so yes XFC (not C++ as such) know signals.
