generally I like this sort of thing. The library itself comes with a
few wrappers to be used for things like this - and xml serialization.

I'm not sure it's a good choice in this particular instance though as it
requires the user to explicitly tie the serialization to the archive.

I would expect one to overload the serialize function in the archive
for native C++ arrays.

If one had nothing else to do he could create an "archive adaptor" which
would look like:

class archive_add_special_array<typename base_archive> which
would add the overload to any archive. They you'd just instantiate
a new archive for each base archive etc.
