I have some free time today, so I will start working on a patch for this. I've
given this particular problem consideration in the past and I'm pretty confident
that I can have a fix done today or tomorrow.

I do not, however, have trunk access. As such, before I get started on this, I
would like somebody with trunk access to agree to maintain the patch and handle
any bugs (unless Ramey is willing to do this; it's my understanding that he's
pretty busy at this point in time).

I have already wrote one (semi-extensive) patch for Serialization
( which has been signed
off on by Ramey but has still not been applied because my requests for SVN access
have gone unanswered. So, before I do any work on fixing this I would like some
assurance that the time and effort I invest will not go to waste.

Alternatively, I could be given SVN access to Serialization, fix this today/during
the weekend, and have it applied before 1.45 Beta (not to mention we could get my
rewrite of Serializations XML Spirit grammar in; then the library would not rely
on an ancient version of Spirit.Classic, and reading XML archives would be
notably faster).
