SRP serializes the state of a network of objects into a stream of data. Serialization starts with a root object and traverses all objects referenced directly or indirectly down to a user defined level. As object state is serialized, it can be transported to an object space of another OO computer language or dialect and the object network can be loaded (replicated) as it was saved. SRP's streaming of objects is affectionately refered to as "SluRPing"--as in slurping an object.
