I included some regression tests that test usage with the serialization
library. And, lo and behold, the following test fails on VC++ 7.1:
locale tmp_locale(old_locale, new extended_num_get<char>);
locale new_locale(tmp_locale, new extended_num_put<char>);
double x = std::numeric_limits<double>::infinity();
oa & x;
ia & y;
BOOST_CHECK(x == y);
The facets extended_num_put and extended_num_get are never called.
Instead std::num_put and std::num_get are called.
There is a workaround: first construct the stream, then construct the
archive, and then imbue the stream with the new locale. But that seems
