For anyone interested in extending Robert Ramey's serialization library
derived archive types, the attached archives may be interesting.

Included are an archive template for ordered binary marshalling output
or little-endian), and rudimentary specialisations for CDR and XDR

These aren't really new archives, since they derive from Robert's
archive classes, but they do demonstrate to some extent what needs to be
done to modify the archive output.

Issues I've had in extending the archives:
 - The difference between overriding 'save', 'save_override', 'vsave' and
   operator<< is not immediately obvious...
 - Controlling access to individual save/load overloads still has me
 - There's something weird with initializing wchar_t's going on...

Questions or comments welcome.
