Check out these functions in WordPress:

	- is_serialized()
	- maybe_serialize()
	- maybe_unserialize()

Also check what we do in wp-includes/cache.php (Default FS cache) to  
kill object references... we serialize then unserialize them.  It's  
not a great method because it uses a lot of RAM, but no one has yet  
suggested a better method.
