Never stored the serialized data in a database, but I've never had any
trouble storing it in a file. It's worked just fine with everything
I've thrown at it. Just don't try to serialize resources (file handles,
DB connections) and you should be just fine. Make sure you escape the
data before storing it in a database with addslashes() or whatever your
database library provides.
