For two reasons, performance, and the possibility to include it into a
bigger C library. I'm in the process of writing said C library (yet
another take on preemptive multitasking), and I'm still undecided if
there should be built-in support for serialization of messages (and
possibly arguments and return values), or if it should be left to the
user's discretion what is carried in strings, and how. If I started
looking into such a library as a user, I think I would appreciate
included support.
