        I’d rather see it use the unabbreviated ‘-functions’ suffix.
        (Also, aren’t “serialization” and “deserialization” often
        referred to as “writing” and “reading” in the dialects of Lisp?)

        It doesn’t look like a common abbreviation, so I guess
        “serializer, deserializer” should rather be spelled in full.
        (And even more so when it comes to the first line of a
