there is more interesting stuff in Boost.Seriailzation that could be
part of boost in general.
  - especially seriailzation::singleton, because it requires linking
to the serialization library even though you don't serialize anything.
  - ptr_serialization_support in
which forces instantiation of a function. this apparently cannot be
implemented platform independently, so Boost.Config might be the right
library for it?
  - smart_cast
