I am already using the serialization library whence I'd really like to
see it in the upcoming release.

If it helps to make sure it is included than I can offer to run the
test suite on a linux box with gcc 3.4.1, at least until the release
is out and the problems with the excessive disk space usage is dealt with.
This way Martin Wille could exclude this particular platform from his
tests and regain some of his disk space.

Please contact me if there is any interest.
