Subject: [boost] [serialization] Passing literals to oarchive
From: Bjorn Reese (breese_at_[hidden])

Currently we cannot pass literals directly to an oarchive like this:

   oarchive << 42;

since compilation fails in interface_oarchive.hpp, as the operator<<
only takes parameters by reference.

We can remedy this by changing operator<< to take the parameter
by const-ref instead, as show below. Is there any reason not to do
