Subject: [boost] Dependance obetween boost::mpi, boost::serialization and iostreams

Boost::MPI uses Boost::serialization for marshalling data and sending
them in a pervasive way.

I have a small scale implementation of MPI running on the Cell processor
and I'm trying to patch boost::mpi to use it. However, as serialization
seems ot use iostream or sstream at some point, the resulting executable
blow up the 256Kb limits of SPE local store.

How deep is iostream needed by serialization and how can I limit this
dependance so I can have a proper Cell-enabled boost::mpi ?
