serialize object

hi !

3 questions concerning your serialize objects ?

1. why is it called "serialize" ? it's just, because i think that
packages are more "parallel" than sequences of floats

2. i would highly appreciate, if the maximum length of the
ouput-packages would be not set (256 may seem big, but yesterday i
really needed 16k !!!); how about allocating memory dynamically ?

3. how about accepting lists of floats too ? "1 2"+"3"+"4 5 6" --> "1 2
3 4 5 6"

this of course is no realy hard work and i could do it myself (what i've
already done, but not on the machine i am actually sitting so i don't
send any codes now); and i don't want to integrate it into zexy (to not
have not-exact copies of some objects in various externals)

on the other hand i have just done the vice-versa object (convert
packages to sequences) and i thouhgt of naming it "unfold" (still
searching for a better name); i definitely do not want it to be called
"parallelize" (or "paralyze"), since this is not what it is doing - on
the other hand, maybe the names should be coherent....
