Subject: [boost] [serialization] feedback on a possible port of the XML archive grammar to Qi

I've recently started working on porting Boost.Serialization's XML parser from
Spirit Classic to Spirit Qi (I've got some free time on my hands, and I heard
that there was some interest in this task). Before I start putting more time
into this, I'd love to get some feedback/suggestions and make sure someone else
isn't already working on this.

My understanding is that porting the parser from Spirit Classic to Spirit Qi
will not only speed up XML serialization, but would also increase portability
(on some compilers, Serialization only works with Spirit 1.6, which is not
shipped with the latest Boost release). My current plan is to rewrite the
grammar in Qi, and modify the existing XML archive classes to use the new parser
without changing the interface or the outputted XML.
