However, don't forget that you can always make changes to the trunk as well
as the branch, and then merge them later :-)

And... without wishing to point fingers... Serialization currently accounds
for about half of the outstanding regressions at, so I guess we need
to make some sort of decision whether 1.35 will contain:

1) The Boost-1.34 version of serialization (in which case we should revert
the Trunk for the time being).
2) Current Trunk version (plus fixes? Looks like many of the failures have
a single cause?)
3) The current development branch version that you're actively working on.

Which we go for much depends upon Beman's schedule, so over to the release
manager I guess ;-)

Regards, John.
