You could look at some other boost examples for some help. Here's a link to
the date-time serilization code. It is non-intrusive -- only using the public
interface of the various types it serializes such as gregorian::date:

http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/boost/boost/boost/date_time/gregorian/greg_serialize.hpp?rev=1.7&view=markup

or the multi_index code -- maybe more like BGL b/c it is a collection

http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/boost/boost/boost/multi_index/detail/index_saver.hpp?rev=1.3&view=auto

HTH,
