If a class is popular enough, I often do. For example, the C++
Middleware Writer (CMW) has support for the standard containers,
std::complex, multi_index_container, stable_vector and others.

I don't have to go to any great lengths to find tests where
the performance of executables that use Boost Serialization
lags behind CMW based executables. I just think up a test
and write it. The tests are quite basic.

One thing I didn't mention yesterday is support for stream-
template <typename R>
explicit Base (ReceiveBufferFile<R>& buf);
Does the Boost Serialization library have support for that?
