Something that I would really like to see, is the cooperation between the
serialization library and the dynamic_any type (developed by Alexander
Nasonov, not yet into Boost). More specifically, it must be possible to
serialize and deserialize dynamic_any's if, of course, the underlying types
support this and the dynamic_any is configured in a suitable way - for
example, to support operator<< and/or operator>>, and possibly something
more if necessary. This would be a very powerful mechanism, allowing
serialization of arbitrary data.
Btw, I tend to agree most with Yitzhak Sapir's definition of serialization,
although it could probably be simplified and cleaned up a bit.
