I appreciate that it would be nice.  If, however, the fix does not
make the first cut for Lenny, your code has the option of
working around the bug by adding

  #include <boost/mpl/and.hpp>

before including <boost/serialization/utility.hpp>.  It's not
elegant, but it should work.

In addition, there is the possibility to push a patched Boost
into the first Lenny update.

OK.  Boost is kind of fragile in that nearly every upload of it fails
to build (at least temporarily) on one architecture or another.  So
I am sticking to my original plan of no uploads to unstable until
Lenny is out the door.  Sorry  :-)
