There's no information in the documentation about this. I'm not sure what
it would mean to serialize a function pointer. Its possible it might be
done by just defining non-intrusive serialize(ar, fp) as and empty function.
I would have to think about this. However, I do believe that serialization
of a function object would present no new issues. Then there is the
possibility of creating a wrapper which makes a function object out a
function pointer and serializing that. I'm sure already contains some
objects of this nature. Please investigate this and report back.

Yes, a post review version hasn't been submitted yet.
