Is this "Spirit-Only" distribution available anywhere?

I don't see any attachments, did you forget it?

Let me clarify -- does it means that no release of Spirit is known
to work with 1.34 RC state of serialization and borland compiler?

Then, maybe we should not spend much more time getting serialization tests
to work with borland, because even if you or Roland succeed in making all tests
green, then users might think everything is OK, while in practice they should
follow non-trivial procedure to get it to work.

What do you think?
