=head1 NAME

POE::Component::IKC::Freezer - Pure-Perl serialization method.

=head1 SYNOPSIS

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This serializer uses L<Data::Dumper> and C<eval $code> to get the deed
done.  There is an obvious security problem here.  However, it has the
advantage of being pure Perl and all modules come with the core Perl
distribution.
