It could be interesting to have a method to serialize deep objects to flat array in order to submit data from a form (NOT IN AJAX) to create a PDF for example.

See the sample:

I just added a possibility to specify a function in the Jquery.param() function

See the "JUST DO THIS" section of this example for a way to do this that doesn't require any changes to jQuery.

Thanks, it's true, it can be done in a post traitment. And do you think it could be interesting to create a function paramsToFlatArray() for example with the content of your code? I don't know if it can be usefull for a general usage...

I can notice the following line in Jquery param() method:

Return the resulting serialization

return s.join( "&" ).replace( r20, "+" );

Why the spaces are replaced by "+" ?

For now I just modify your code to replace "+" character to %20 before decoding as you can see here:
