Just wanted to note here, that after playing with it a bit it does seem
to handle references properly.
It also manages to serialize simple classes without any intrusive
instrumentation whatsoever. Very nice! As usual with doost, though, it
could use a little documentation. And more comments in the code. The
few comments there are in Polish, which isn't much use to me.
I couldn't find the serializer in arclib. What file is it in?
