Serialization will/should use "temp_file". I have been doing a bunch of
related work on a persistent vector, i.e. a template that has (almost)
the same i/f as std::vector but persists from one execution of an app
to the next. Un-named (i.e. temporary) persistent vectors are definitely
useful. Implementation of "clear" is made much simpler.
