Right, this concept is typically called a "serializer" and "deserializer".
Adding them to the API is a good idea. But I don't understand why we'd want
to store side-data as binary (platform-independent) data, that would ruin
it accessibility from applications. Applications don't want to call hton or
ntoh on each structure member they access, right?
