/** @brief An archive that packs binary data into an MPI buffer.
 *
 *  The @c packed_iarchive class is an Archiver (as in the
 *  Boost.Serialization library) that packs binary data into a buffer
 *  for transmission via MPI. It can operate on any Serializable data
 *  type and will use the @c MPI_Pack function of the underlying MPI
 *  implementation to perform serialization.
