Subject: [boost] [serialization] using boost::serialization::collection_size_type and backwards compatibility
From: joaquin_at_[hidden]

An observant colleague has noticed that Boost.MultiIndex serialization
uses std::size_type instead of the adviced

My question is: if I just change std::size_type with
boost::serialization::collection_size_type in Boost.MultiIndex
serialization code,
will backwards compatibility be preserved, i.e. will users be able to load
archives saved with the old std::size_type variant? If not, what's the
way to handle this issue?

Thank you,
