Add a flag to enable/disable maybe_serialize() functionality on metadata

Since meta_queries don’t take maybe_serialize() into account, and since serialized strings are doubly serialized, there is a situation where a value can be stored in post meta that cannot be retrieved. Adding an optional $strict flag to metadata functions that casts all values as strings, without conversion, would solve this issue.
