Interesting - the thing that I'd like to achieve (apart from xml and  
json) is a general purpose rev array serializer (both for storing to  
files, and transmitting over the network), that can simply acommodate  
anything that a rev array can, including binary data, but that  
doesn't require any pre-processing of an array from the user. So it  
would know when to base64encode or whatever, and would know how to  
unserialize and so-on. Ideally, it would be somewhat human-readable,  
too.

Best,

Mark
