These convenience functions pack or unpack the contents of libixp structures into their wire format. They behave as if ixp_pu8(3), ixp_pu16(3), ixp_pu32(3), ixp_pu64(3), and ixp_pstring(3) were called for each member of the structure in question. ixp_pqid is to ixp_pqid as ixp_pstrings(3) is to ixp_pstring.
ixp_sizeof_stat returns the size of the packed represention of stat.
