In principle there should be no reason for e.g. time_serialize.hpp to
include Boost Serialization headers in order to define the "load" or"save"
function templates needed for serialization.
For example, to define:
void save( Archive & ar, const posix_time::time_duration& td, unsigned int
one doesn't need to include any serialization headers.
Users of time_serialize.hpp who need to save posix_time::time_duration
objects should include the necessary serialization headers themselves.
