....I believe the release needs to take priority over serialization at this
point. It's purely a timing issue. Because of the diskspace problem, the
full Linux regression tests aren't available so other library authors are
unable to clean up the mainline. So while I would love to see Robert clean
things up and get serialization in the release it seems unlikely this is going
to be feasible unless someone comes up with a way to allow the Linux
regression tests to continue (maybe someone wants to fork up $150 bucks and
Fedex Martin a new disk drive ;-)

In the meantime, Robert can look at my single compiler Mandrake Linux
regression test and work off gcc3.3 serialization regression issues (as of
yesterday everything was failing with what appears to be a Jamfile issue --
can't find library stdc++). I'm going to kick off a new version in a few minutes.
