Topic: why libserialize

What is it that src/libserialize offer that others don't... why is it still in the codebase?

src/libserialize allows specializing the encode/decode implementation for a specific encoder/decoder to get access to extra context. The ones used in rustc are EncodeContext and DecodeContext, which both include TyCtxt, and several other things.
