I don't think the serialization -> spirit dependency must be removed
forcedly. As I said in another post the opposite seems unuseful as the
file is not used.

We can manage with the graph cycle by extracting the following submodules

bimap.property_map -> bimap property_map
property_map.parallel ->property_map mpi

and grouping graph and disjoint_set.

In the same way extracting the serialization part from date_time to a
submodule helps to break the date_time. I would say that we should do
the the same for each module that depends on serialization, create a

module.serialization -> module serialization

The dependencies to tr1 should be removed and replaced by the underlying
Boost libraries.

Another dependency that can be broken is chrono -> interprocess buy
adding a submodule.

I'll create the submodule myself.
