Comment(by ramey):

 What I think you want is a variable functor. This has nothing to do with
 seriaization but I'll address it anyway.

 a) Method one.
    1) Derive all functors from a common base class.
    2) Make the base class virtual by adding one virtual function
    3) Good idea to make it abstract as well.
    4) maybe you want to make operator()() virtual as well.
    4) serialize as one would any base class pointer - using EXPORT or

 b) Method two.
    1) Use a boost::variant which can hold any one of all the types of
 functors you want
       to use.
    2) serialize an instance of the variant. This is already in the

 The crux of the issue is that you really want to to serialize a type
 rather than a piece of data. Either of the above two methods will do the

 This is the best I can guess as to what you want to do give the
 information I have.
