Serial = sequentially assigned. For some definition of token, first
token in file gets serial number 1, second gets 2, etc. If complete
file has N tokens, last token serial number is N. It's almost the
same as byte offset, just (a) more compact and (b) more stable under
semantically null edits. FWIW.
Use byte offsets for simplicity!
