About two years ago when there was talk of a GSOC 2013 project for JSON, I
posted that I had been working on changes to ptree so that you could have a
ptree<string, boost::any> and be able to round trip successfully. At the
time no one seemed interested. I think I should be able to recreate what I
had done to make it work for you if your use case is DOM centric like Bjorn
Reese's post indicates is one of the draw backs of using ptree.
