Hello Beman,

looks interesting. I'm not able to find the file mentioned
in the README, it seems to be missing in the repository.

I have four remarks on the current state

1) I think having the in-memory representation to be identical to the
on-disk representation is a very serious limitation. Wrapping around it
by overloading the output stream operators doesn't seem efficient. I'm
not advocating Boost.Serialization; rather something like Asio's
buffer-handling mechanism (which, in turn, can handle Boost.Serialization).

2) using a "path" argument to having a file open presumes a real
underlying file. Although this is fine, maybe I would like to use an

3) It would be nice if it would work with an asynchronous file-like
services, like, e.g., Asio's RandomAccessHandleService, see

4) have you looked at and/or ?
