Basically, better support for binary formats which includes, but not limited to: 1) functions for converting to and from various datatypes 2) reducing the need to convert to and from network byte order 3) better documentation
My suggestion on using ASN.1 was merely a naive suggestion on how in can be implemented properly without breaking (future) compatibility because that seems to be the main problem which prevents the use of binary formats. On 6/5/07, Richard Huxton <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:

Um - speaking as a user, not a developer, I don't actually see a description of what problem(s) you are suggesting be solved. Are you saying there should be better documentation, or a new format? -- Richard Huxton Archonet Ltd
