 WordPress iteself and many other Plugins store option-values as a so
 called "serialized string".

 WordPress Admin has got a Page that displays all Options:

 With this Page, many of those can be viewed and edited. But: The options
 that are stored as serialized values can not be edited nor viewed.

 That means, if an Administrator want to get a view on the values, she/he
 needs to take a database viewer at least. And then the serzialized values
 are a very long string, rendering this very unusefull.

 Therefore, this enhancement adds functionality to the Options Page sothat
 serialized values can be viewed. This is very usefull for example to
 analyse your setup.

 The current motivation and why I'd like to see this in fast, is because of
 the problems that resulted with the current no-control situation to see
 which plugins are really activated through options . For example as
 describben in #9164.
