Subject: [Boost-users] [serialization] Observation regarding xml archives and library version

Hi folks, hi Robert,

did anyone notice that xml archives can be loaded where other archive
types throw an "unsupported version" exception? I was rather surprised
when I was able to read in an xml archive created by 1.41 using 1.34!
The internal library version changed twice since then, so ...

... are you a magician, Robert? :-) Or is this an undocumented virtue of
xml archives? Or is this just a bug nobody seems to have noticed before?
