You're welcome. ;-)

Yes, I have noted this, it's great. But I have to admit I'm not 100%
happy that you didn't choose the approach proposed by John on the 64 bit
overloads. And there are some warning issued by GCC when compiling the
library, but this has been noted on the boost mailing list already.

Just today I comment out this workaround locally to see if I could do
anything about it. The library compiles ok if the workaround is removed
but I had unresolved symbols when linking, so I didn't pursue the issue
any further. If you are interested, I will try to get a small isolated
test case from the serialization library up and running.

Maybe we can make the library work for this platform with joint efforts.
