[erlang-questions] erl_nif: nif_to_binary and binary_to_nif API calls

It would be handy to have the same functionality that is provided by erlang:term_to_binary and erlang:binary_to_term available to a NIF author.

 erlang:term_to_binary(term()) -> ext_binary()
 erlang:binary_to_term(ext_binary()) -> term()

except in C where term() is ERL_NIF_TERM and ext_binary() is ErlNifBinary.
