Lisp data structures are easily converted into plain text, and then a
buffer which holds that text can be saved to a disk file.  To restore,
you need only invoke the Lisp reader on the saved text.  How difficult
can that be?  There are already quite a few packages that do similar
things, like saveplace, for example.
