Yep, on the other hand YAML doesn't have these limitations. Actually it
supports class versioning (well, sort of) and object referencing (with "&")
out of the box.

Although it hasn't been discussed earlier, can I propose a YAML archive for
Boost.serialization? The only problem I see is that there's no Boost.Spirit
parser for YAML and its syntax is more complex than the JSON one. However,
there's an official implementation in C [1], used by all the existing YAML
parsers. But I guess a Spirit-based parser is nicer.
