Not all, I'm still working through that list, but I found not a single
mention of 5.2, and 5.3 was only recently released. Many entries depend
on old versions, do write to a file, miss handling for cyclic
references. Eris and Pluto are ruled out for version specificy and
looking into state internals. Data Dumper and Serpent are close to my
requirements, but there may be others which I am not aware of or
achieve the same in C or use JSON as a transport format, for example.
