Agree, you've made a great work and i don't want to repeat your efforts.
Maybe you are right and some writer implementation can be a great
solution. I should take a closer look at your library to become more
competent for this conversation.
Anyway reflection library (in theory) should provide all information
on class/type whereas serialization library should select only serializable
members. Wrong ?
