Please keep me posted on that as well (and it would have been nice to have
a subject line specifically on Graph and PropertyMap issues). I suspect
that the underlying communication layer used by the parallel graph and
property map libraries can be pulled out; it is in the graph library right
now, leading to the dependency. There also seem to be more general
utilities (untracked_pair and unsafe_serialize, for example) that might
belong in Boost.Serialization instead of the graph or property map
libraries. Looking through the other graph headers used in
distributed_property_map.hpp (which is the one with the most
dependencies), they can either be moved to boost/property_map/parallel
since they have no other dependencies themselves, or (in the case of
hash<edge_desc_impl>) moved into the graph library. I am also willing to
make those changes if you want.
