What about having a quick de/serializer we can use to serialize and send
data to another process or thread?  This could perform the requested job
and give back the data using this same binary format.

The pdumper would be the first candidate to look at to be generalized
for this purpose.

We would probably need also some specific way to limit the deepness of
the copy in certain cases, this not to end-up serializing the whole heap.
