Yes. In particular, I believe a CDR (Common Data Representation), which is
CORBA's binary format would be highly useful for network apps.

Well, I believe that one of the design changes that was requested in the first
review. That is, to make the archive seperate from serialization -- and hence
in the current version the Robert has created the boost/archive directory.

I'm not building such a thing, but if you do I'm sure I'll use it. And your
experiences in extending the library would be interesting for the upcoming
re-review of serialization :-)
