This module provide serialization and deserialization functions for Python
objects. Its main features are:

* Human-readable format compatible with the Python syntax.
* Each object is serialized on a single line, with only ASCII characters.
* Supports all basic Python data structures: None, booleans, integers,
  floats, complex numbers, strings, tuples, lists, dictionaries.
* Those data types are accurately reconstructed (unlike JSON where e.g. tuples
  become lists, and dictionary keys are turned into strings).
* Supports Numpy arrays.

The main rationale for this new custom serializer (instead of using JSON) is
that JSON does not support Numpy and more generally cannot be extended with
other data types while keeping a concise syntax. Here we can use the Python
function call syntax to express special data types.
