I think it would be relatively straightforward to support something like MBV.
The machinery is already there, it would just need to be applied a bit

Yeah, I implemented portable binary serialization, along with native binary and
text serialization. I had some performance issues with boost serialization, it
seems as if the boost archives are not well optimized to what I'm doing, which
is creating thousands of archives per second, and then serializing a small
amount of data to/from them. I haven't looked closely enough yet to say where
the bottleneck is, though.
