If you want more compact archives don't use xml. Use either text or
portable_binary(or plain binary for homogenous platforms). Additionally
you can use these with boost.iostreams compressed filters.

The structure of your class heirarchy drives the output/input of archive
data. They only optional aspect is to use the versioning facility.
