Please let me give you a silly example:

struct Person {
  std::string _name ;
  int _age ;
  bool is_retired(void) const { return _age >= 65 ; };

When serializing such an object, many users would like to have
'IsRetired' saved like the other members.
 This may sound silly, but sometimes users are always right :):):) . So,
CRD allows to have in a definition list, not only class members, but
also methods of a given signature.
