Description:
------------
Ok, Tried this once with feature request #42725
and no go. Second try..

First read the #42725 and then read this:

Of course I know those, but those don't unserialize() data which is
formatted like:

PUTLASTHOST|s:23:"kuvajainen.domain.tld";PUTHOST|s:23:"kuvajainen.domain.tld";PUTDOCROOT|s:39:"/data/www/c/k/u/kuvajainen.domain.tld";putprofiles|s:3:"4,5";

And there are many different serializer handlers in php, for example:
Registered serializer handlers => php php_binary wddx

So there should be functions which can use those registered serializer
handlers to serialize/unserialize data accordingly selected serializer
handler.

So I don't think that this is bogus feature request.
Prove me wrong, but serialize/unserialize isn't the answer.

You get one vote from me! This is far from bogus. And here is a simple test case:

session_start();
echo serialize($_SESSION), "\n";
echo file_get_contents('/path/sess_'.session_id());

If the advice from derick@php.net was solid, I would expect the exact same output from both echoes.

Actual result:
a:1:{s:4:"asdf";s:6:"foobar";}
asdf|s:6:"foobar";

The question is, why?  I mean, there are already session_encode()
and session_decode() to populate $_SESSION manually – do you need
something else?
