You can choose either Data::Dumper or XML. It compresses by default,
but you can output it plain too (which you'd want in the repo). For
elfutils master I got 1.1M and 556K uncompressed dumps, respectively.
Amusingly, the difference in size appears to be mostly whitespace, from
Data::Dumper's heavy indentation with spaces. I expect git's object
compression should moot that difference. At least, bzip2 of either
format is only about 27K.
