In this case there's no need for a macro. Just use:
ar & make_nvp( "variable", m_variable);
What would be useful (for me ) would be a macro that used a user defined
default for the prefix. We use CamelCase type names here.
#define BOOST_SERIALIZATION_NVP_PREFIX_DEFAULT m
ar & BOOST_SERIALIZATION_NVP_PREFIXED( Variable );
Which would be equivalent to:
ar & make_nvp( "Variable", mVariable);
But, looking at it now, the non-macro version is more readable, flexible and
fewer characters to boot.
