I should add that these aren't dealt with right now. Writing back
an array with a record inside of it of course results in an error
because #< is an unknown object which isn't handled.

The only way to make everything serializable is to force SMOBs to
have a read routine associated with them even if they don't do
anything to avoid errors.
