I see.

In fact, their response is better: this is confirmed as regression, so
chances of fixing it are high. I am not sure in what version it will be
fixed, though.

If I remove "explicit" I have another error from g++:

/home/ghost/Work/boost/boost/archive/basic_binary_oarchive.hpp: In member
   function `boost::archive::basic_binary_oarchive<OStream>&
   boost::archive::basic_binary_oarchive<OStream>::operator<<(const T&)
[with T
   = unsigned int, OStream = std::ostream]':
../src/binary_oarchive.cpp:25: instantiated from here
/home/ghost/Work/boost/boost/archive/basic_binary_oarchive.hpp:130: error:
   C++ says that `void
   boost::archive::basic_binary_oarchive<OStream>::save_override(const T&,
   int) [with T = unsigned int, OStream = std::ostream]' and `void
   boost::archive::object_reference_type&, int) [with OStream =
   are ambiguous even though the worst conversion for the former is better
   the worst conversion for the latter

That's most likely because removing "explicit" adds the second function to
the list of viable one for overload resolution.

Hmm... I don't know how to make 3.3 happy. Not to mention that I don't
understand what's "worst conversion", in the error message.
