I find it useful to allow such fields to take the value #f and meaning
that they will be ignored by their respective serialize- procedures.
For example:
  (define (serialize-string field-name val)
   (if val
     (serialize-field field-name val)))

     +(define (serialize-boolean field-name val)
     +  (serialize-string field-name (if val "yes" "no")))

Some configs require "true" and "false" instead of "yes" and "no".  So perhaps
this can be generalised a little.

Probably, but this patch is just about moving code around.  :-)

Applied.

I changed the copyright line back to Andy, since he wrote this, and
added #:autoload instead of #:use-module for the Texinfo modules.

Thank you!
