Unfortunately, as the serialization lib is very good stuff,
people working on such nasty things would be very efficient using it!
In case they could discover this Robert's jewel,
maybe one could add some bugs in it to discourage such initiative!

Typically, a few hidden macros in the serialization.h header could be:




Also we could add (that does not hurt):

  BOOST_SAVE_US_CAR_INDUSTRY (this_consumer)
  BOOST_ENJOY_YOUR_BIKE (this_programmer)

and maybe more:

  BOOST_SAVE_CLIMATE (this_world)


and its variant:


but I have no idea how this could be implemented! ;-)

Enjoy Boost! (self satisfactory macro: BOOST_ENJOY_BOOST)

... and thanks again to you Robert!
