I can help with the testing, but not sure I'd be much use to you doing
anything else.

I would be ecstatic to have a hand...

The transition is basically complete, the only thing staying me from
switching over is knowing that after the switch there will be bugs
unforeseen that have to be fixed. Now, I've been away from the code base for
6 weeks (since Montreal) so things might have changed, but at that point the
situation was that the next step was:

- turn GSERIALIZED_ON in gserialized.h
- check again that all the regression failures are actually ones we're
willing to accept (they are mostly about slight changes in the output of
M-valued geometries in nested WKT, and I've decided they are "good"
- commit to using GSERIALIZED, and commit the regression changes

The big pieces of work remaining at that point would be:

- add selectivity to the 3d/4d index (&&&) bindings
- add typmod support to geometry, following the example in geography

And cleanup work would be

- actually remove the dead pieces of code that GSERIALIZED_ON turns off
- actually search/replace the types that GSERIALIZED_ON currently just
- remove the old WKT parser and WKB parser (these are currently unused
except in some cunit tests that compare the new/old code for
- continue to review the LWGEOM API and look for functions that can/should
be moved to the internal.h header and out of the public API
