There are some reports (https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/ticket/4660)
about the lack of information and misunderstanding of the status
of this bug in version 1.45. So I decided to reopen this bug.
I think it is common problem for boost, but not only serialization
library. We have good quality and good design library (any library
from boost). This library is quite popular and many people use it.
But the author is now engaged in other projects and did not have
the time to support the library. It is very likely and expected
on a time scale of 10 years. But so many people around the
world use this code and depend on it...
I do not know the solution to this problem.
