$.param without serializing function results

Is it possible to add an option in $.param so that functions are purely and simply ignored from the serialization ?

Line 7499 (v1.10.2)

value = jQuery.isFunction( value ) ? value() : ( value == null ? "" : value );

Currently, functions are executed and the result is serialized. In many case, the end-user simply wants the key/values of his native object to be serialized and functions left out.

The documentation for $.param() explains that it calls the function and uses the return value. APIs that need additional arguments to modify their behavior get ugly really quickly. We already have the traditional argument there. This is a low-level method intended mainly for use by $.serialze(). If you have special needs just wrap it with your own method or use a better option like JSON.
