You did not know it was impossible, so you did it :)
I was just refeing to a message from Robert Ramey:

It looks like the implementation of the serialization of
boost::shared_ptr has changed a lot since that time, and it might be
possible to adapt it to std::shared_ptr. From what I understand,
however, this serialization needs extra bookeeping which is currently
stored inside of the archive class. So it looks like I have to define my
own archive to be able to serialize std::shared_ptr. I'm gonna give a
thought about that.

Anyway, now that parts of boost have been standardized, I think it would
be great if those could interface smoothly with the parts of boost that
have not.
