There is a discussion going on now on the C++ committee's library
reflector, summed up by Pete Becker:

> Yes, there is a general need for displaying an ordered set (in the
> broadest sense) of things, whether we call that set a pair, a tuple, a
> container, a complex number, or whatever.

Discussion included ways of providing user customizable formatting for such

This strikes me as the same problem as the much discussed (on Boost) issue
of user-customizable serialization formats.

I wonder what those who have been following Robert Ramey's serialization
proposal closely think? Could one mechanism solve both serialization and
display needs?
