/**
* Tests if an input is valid PHP serialized string.
*
* Checks if a string is serialized using quick string manipulation
* to throw out obviously incorrect strings. Unserialize is then run
* on the string to perform the final verification.
*
* Valid serialized forms are the following:
* <ul>
* <li>boolean: <code>b:1;</code></li>
* <li>integer: <code>i:1;</code></li>
* <li>double: <code>d:0.2;</code></li>
* <li>string: <code>s:4:"test";</code></li>
* <li>array: <code>a:3:{i:0;i:1;i:1;i:2;i:2;i:3;}</code></li>
* <li>object: <code>O:8:"stdClass":0:{}</code></li>
* <li>null: <code>N;</code></li>
* </ul>

Added some variables to spare the execution per each case in switch() comparison.
