The example is quite distinct from the library being used...
In other words, there is a special quality of Boost.Serialization that is of importance: it exists. So, we are allowed to use it, and by using it, we have to write very little code ourselves, beside a number of include statements. Great!

This is a different issue. Is that your problem, that you think compilers have a problem with some complex constructs inside the Boost.Serialization library? Does the compiler fail? Consume too much resources? Too much time?
