Is there any reason why we can't use the seqfile API for this? These
both share a similar goal, formatting strings into a buffer to be read
later. Maybe some new APIs would be needed to extract the buffer
differently, but I hope we could share the code.

If it can't be used, can you please add the reasoning to the commit text
here?
