Hi Sebastian,

There is currently no serialization support in Boost.Accumulators, but
it would certainly be a useful addition. There are a number of people in
industry who have a vested interest in Boost.Accumulators, and after you
sent your message they contacted me about possibly adding serialization
support at some point in the future. So consider it on the ToDo list. I
can't give you an ETA, so if you need something in the short term, I'm
afraid you'll have to roll your own solution. If you go that route,
you'll need to make each individual accumulator serializable and use the
accumulator_set's visitation interface to serialize each accumulator in
the set.
