Boost :

The next version of my persistence library is in the egroups
files section.

Major changes:
 - describe() replaces save() and load() by default, you can
still overload save() and load() if you wish
 - Documentation has been improved slightly. Beman-style
"what calls what" list illustrates all configuration options.
 - nicer container handling, no fixed size in text representation
any more
 - const char * -type strings work with Comeau, but have (yet
undocumented) restriction/precautions. I have conflicting
overload ambiguities popping up with gcc and Comeau: I fix gcc,
then Comeau is broken and vice versa. :-(

This really exercises function overloading of your compiler.
Tested with gcc 2.95.2 and Comeau.

 - XML or HTML output
 - portable binary representation(s)
 - allow for fuzzy parsing of text input
