The decision on supporting various libraries is that serialization provides
support for standard collections since we can't modify the standard library,
but all other libraries will provide their own serialization. So Bitset
should be in serialization while Boost.Tuple needs to provide the necessary
functions. Why don't you write the functions and contribute them?
