I wouldn't expect it to help, no. :-)
Robert's perspective here, FWIW, is that he develops and tests (quite
extensively) in a configuration in which all libraries are on their master
branch and Serialization is on develop.
On this configuration, once everything is green, merge is as easy as
"merge --no-ff develop". You've already tested it, so there's no way
anything can fail.
Of course this has its own drawback - the boost.org tests do not work in
such a manner.
