There is an interesting technique thay allows you to serialize infinite,
lazy or functional values: don't try to describe how those values look,
but how they came to be. In a purely functional language it's easy to
guarantee that you will get the same value each time you "replay" it's
creation. Those who used WASH/CGI should know what I mean.
