Yes, but all optimizations are disabled.
And since I don need to handle endianness, this seems too costly.
I have taken care not have mismatched integer sizes in the objects I
But the binary_i(o)_archives are still forcing the size_t on me.
That is all.
I understand though, that changing the binary_i(o)_archive string
serialization to use
collection_size_type will break all existing 64 binary archives...
