Perhaps Robert can state for himself whether he considers
unacceptable, and why. It is a very localized change. (Contiguous sequences
with non-pointer iterators such as std::vector and std::string would also
need to be touched slightly by manually inlining save_collection in their
respective save overloads, but this is also minor; or alternatively, we can
define boost::pbegin and use that in save_collection.)
