To reiterate, its really easy to write a JSON archive that operates just
like current archives, but the thing to determine is whether Boost
Serialization can inter-operate nicely with the outside world. I think
the answer is yes, with limitations. IMHO, any GSoC application should
address this, but I am not reviewing them so don't listen to me ;-)
