..and you are able to tell the difference.  Am I wrong in thinking that
this could be made to work if serialization was to/from an opaque type
instead of (Byte)String, so that the *only* operations would be
serialization and deserialization (and possibly storing to/from file)?

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
