Thanks Robert, we got the trunk version to compile/link/run on MSVC8 and
Mac XCode3 Intel & PowerPC with 1.34.1. Doing so required copying
boost_1_35_0 files: .../archive/shared_ptr.hpp and
.../archive/detail/register_archive.hpp. We placed the pb i/o archive
cpp's in our project code, which required adding a #include

It'd be nice to see this added as a standard archive.
