It would not occur to me to use the serialization library in this case.
The serialization library saves/restores a whole data structure of
arbitrary complexity. It does it with one call. It doesn't really
support "picking apart" the saved file. It's not a file protocol - it's
much, much more than that. If you intervene in the process, you'll
likely be surprised at what you get.
