When changing this, please keep the following two things in mind:

- The Zorba_SerializerOptions are also used in the C API.
- The encodings parameter should be an arbitrary string to allow for more 
encodings than utf8 and utf816.

Title:
  serializer should accept/use Zorba_SerializerOptions

Status in Zorba - The XQuery Processor:
  New

Bug description:
  The Zorba API defines Zorba_SerializerOptions, which contains values
  for all known serialization parameters (and typedefs enums for all
  legal values for those parameters). It also contains a method to
  convert string parameters/values appropriately.

  The Zorba serializer (src/api/serialization/serializer.cpp) does not
  use this class, however. It defines an entirely redundant set of
  variables and enums for all these values, and an entirely redundant
  method to convert parameter/value strings. Then, there is
  src/api/serializerimpl.cpp, which contains methods to convert between
  those enums, but also ludicrously contains
  setSerializationParameters() which converts Zorba_SerializerOptions to
  internal serializer values by turning the enum values back into string
  parameter/value pairs and passing them to the internal serializer.
  This is a great deal of wasted code, and it makes adding new
  serialization parameters a nightmare.
