I agree it is a tenuous system. On the other hand how much of a leap
is it from using a network file system when building? There is usually
more distance involved, but in both cases requests and replies are
made. People around the world work on maintaining and improving
the internet and it isn't like reliability is needed just for online code

In the past, differences between the B.Ser and EE approaches to
version support have been discussed in this group.
I don't think there is anything about the EE approach that
prevents doing what B.Ser does with archives.

No one has answered my question of how to obtain 1.34. I tested with
1.35. It was better than 1.33.1, but still more than three times slower
than the EE approach in the list<int> test.

What Ramey said earlier in the thread about possibly ditching
streambufs makes sense to me. Beyond that it would be helpful
to be able to review the code that compilers generate in a
simple B.Ser use. I don't know of any compilers that have an
option to reveal that though. You could compare the assembly code,
but it shouldn't have to be done at that level.
