Yeah, that's a different use-case. A legitimate one but not the one
that my library solves, and not one that I have an interest in

I keep seeing this Trial.Protocol but the library being proposed
(which has no review manager yet) is Boost.JSON. It has not yet been
proven that a token-at-a-time parser can yield the same performance
and incremental behavior features as the one provided in Boost.JSON.
Of course, if you would like to incorporate support for Trial.Protocol
in the benchmark for comparison I encourage it. Simply implement
`any_impl` for your algorithms and add it to the vector in main:


It also seems unfortunate that we have taken a hard turn into the
discussion of Boost.Serialization which I have to stress is not a
contemplated use-case for this library (although it would certainly be
possible to implement an archive for it). I am very interested in
hearing about things which do land within the use-case, especially
things which can be an improvement, as suggestions for improvements of
Boost.Serialization-related uses are not particularly helpful (again,
because Boost.Serialization is not a contemplated use-case).

To get such a conversation started, here are some possible topics:

* The design of boost::json::storage and boost::json::storage_ptr
* Usability of the customization points for going to/from user defined types
* The individual boost::json::object, boost::json::array, and
boost::json::string classes

An even better technique for discovering topics of conversation would
be to actually use the library and give feedback... has anyone done

Nothing handy but there are many videos, blog posts, and wg21 papers
about coroutines (search for "Coroutines TS").
