I guess I just was just used to a different archiving system that used
<< and >> so it acted like streams, that the suggestion to replace both
with a single & seemed logical and clean to me. I don't have any
problem with the use of & in this context.

FWIW, we don't chain calls together either as all our code is for XML
archives which therefore has long make_nvp calls but I still prefer the
& to a .serialize call.

Must be just personal preference.
