I'm afraid I'm not convinced by either the rationale or your posts. For
that reason plan to argue and vote against the inclusion of your library
in the current state.
In addition, there was *no* real discussion on interface. I still would
like to use 'describe', which may work in 95% of cases. I also have some
other minor disagreements. I'm afraid we won't be able to come to a
decision over formal review period.
Given that a lot of time still remains, would you be willings to
actively discuss those issues. I really would like to have serialization
in Boost, only don't feel that the library reached the level that I'd like.
