A few random thoughts:

 - The skip() function seems to be undocumented.
 - The memory streams are interesting in the persistence context.
 - In general, the stuff should be split up a little bit better.
The non-persistent stream manipulators may overlap with the
type-safe printf-like output proposal we had on boost a few months
 - Tests should be written for all functions.
 - more_iomanip.hpp has default template arguments for function
templates. This is an error in general, and it is not needed here
because of template argument deduction.
 - The header dependency list of more_iomanip.hpp looks slightly
frightening -> a reason to split it up.
 - basic_skip::istream_type operator>>(...) has a superfluous
typename in the parameter list.
