I'm considering integrating boost::serialize in our application, mainly for
its deep pointer restoration, but I fear some features are missing.
1/ First, we are using multiple files, which can be created at different
moments. The main reason is that we want to be able to share resources
contained in one file for multiple projects. An alarm rung in my head
telling me that serialize won't be able to handle this case, am I wrong?
2/ And secondly, we want to be able to load files progressively, say 100KB
by 100KB. Once the file is completely loaded, the pointer restoration can
happen. Does serialize support such feature or plan to? If this is not a
huge work, is there a way to provide help to get this feature quickly?
Today, we have a manual phase of association that is called after all files
are loaded. Each time we load a new file, we "post-load" all the resources
contained in it, and pointer restoration is achieved this way.
