I don't see how that works. If I add

friend class boost::serialization::access;

inside of the original class declaration, and then outside the class declaration:

typedef boost::mt19937 rng_t;

namespace boost { namespace serialization {
 // Serialization
  template<class Archive>
  void serialize(Archive & ar, rng &m, const unsigned int /* file_version */){
    ar & serialization::make_nvp ("i", m.i);
    ar & serialization::make_nvp ("x", m.x);

This doesn't compile:
/usr/local/src/boost.hg/boost/random/mersenne_twister.hpp:209: error: 'int boost::random::mersenne_twister<unsigned int, 32, 624, 397, 31, 2567483615u, 11, 7, 2636928640u, 15, 4022730752u, 18, 3346425566u>::i' is private
