It is my intention to upload a new draft of the serialization
library shortly after 1.31 is released.

Persuant to this, I recently updated my local CVS
development tree and rebuilt my projects.

First a had some problems with new iterators. OK
not too bad - but the documentation needs to better
idicate how Transversal catagories should specified
and what the names of legal values are. Also it
seems that min_catagory disappeared which I
had used. Some dead links as well in the documentation.

Not a big deal.

However, I do have a large issue with spirit not supporting
older compilers still in wide use. E.G. VC 7 and 6
among others. The serialization library depends upon
this for parsing XML input. The current situation leaves
me with two choices.

a) remove dependency on spirt
b) restrict usage of XML archives only to conforming compilers.

EIther of these seems intolerable to me.

Would it be possible that spirit 1.6 also be included in
boost 1.31 perhaps under different directory/namespace ?

What can be done here.
