What I think PT must have that serialization library is not meant to is:
1. The ability to load/save properties independently, not as a whole.
2. A documented (for library extensibility) parser interface allowing parser
developers to accomplish (1).
At least 3 storages requiring (1) come to mind: windows registry, ISA Server
storage and IIS metabase.
I would put these requisites as conditions for acceptance.
