This I humbly disagree with, from a user point of view I would not want
to patch either library to get optimal performance, If it is there and
required then tests need to be done with it in. It would be simple to
speed up boost.serialization by #if 0'ing out per class meta information
  lookups (versioning etc) but would still be extremely artificial.

Well since I use versioning heavily with boost.serialization this is a
must have feature for me.
This conversation really should be kept to the boost list where there
are many knowlegedable experts in this area and both libraries could
potentially benifit from the discussion, you can sign up at
