Either we do have a simple enough procedure for the user to follow
(which we don't have yet) or we shouldn't waste more time to get the
serialization regressions to run for 1.34.
Also a user that really needs serialization always can opt. to use an
older version of boost serialization.
Having said this I nevertheless think it will be fine if Nicola can
mange it to provide a working back ported version for the both
compilers. This very well can be done after the release of 1.34.
So my vote is for flagging serialization as
"n/a The library author marked it as unusable on this particular
for msvc-6.5 and borland-5.8.2
The last word of course is up to Thomas Witt.
