Unfortunately I've not been actively updating the implementation to
get it to a point worthy of becoming Boost-compliant. There are a
number of refactoring tasks that I need to complete for it to be
extensible and clean enough for my and others' liking.
One of those yet to be implemented is the serialization of bloom filters.

Cool. I'll try to take a look and see if I can comment on the implementation.

I'd like to see that too. When you get the sandbox account please feel
free to make that happen. :)
