Well, as I said: not the most often used STL collection. Anyway, I have
now, what I *think* is a working std::bitset serialization routine.
Needs a little testing, though. Also I've written no test case (yet).

You *did* remember std::vector<bool> though. It's in
<boost/serialization/vector.hpp>, so no problems here.

I'll see if I can get a test case thrown together for std::bitset. I'll
take a look at boost::tuple as well (but that should be big time
trivial, so... :) )

Working on it...
