Object serialization

Long-time Factor contributor Chris Double has dusted off an incomplete serialization library and polished it up. You can find the code in contrib/serialize/. Now Factor can serialize objects to binary and back again, preserving object identity, shared structure and circularity. He mentioned he will be using this to extend the concurrency library to support distributed message passing. That is just too cool.
