+[![Build Status][ti]][tl] [![Apache License][li]][ll] [![Maven 
Central][mi]][ml] [![Javadoc][ji]][jl]
+**Apache Fluo Bytes is an API project with the goal of providing an extremely
+stable library for handling bytes, suitable for use in [Apache Fluo][fluo] and
+other projects' APIs.**
+## Features and Goals
+This project aims to fill a void in Java, by providing convenient objects to
+represent a string of bytes and associated utility classes for situations when
+a raw byte array is not appropriate.
 Review comment:
   I did try to write more on this initially, but everything I came up with was 
too long and seemed to drift off topic.
   I boiled it down to what you see here, mentioning this library is useful 
when byte arrays aren't appropriate, and then immediately following that 
statement by some of the features that make it so, naming all of the things you 
list here. I don't know that I'd really want more details in the README than 
that. I certainly don't want to repeat a blog post, or make the README a big 
wall of text that provides so many details, it's hard to get the gist.
   But, if you have specific suggestions which can improve this, I'm happy to 
work it in. I, however, am near my editing limit on this subject. :)
