Partial documentations? Questions why it is not fully implemented?

PLIO is the "PicoLisp I/O" binary format. It is used for almost
everything internally: To serialize object to the database, communicate
via IPC, talk with external programs (like the JVM in "java/lib.l").
There are libraries for C (software-lab.de/plio.tgz), JavaScript
("lib/plio.js" in the distribution), or Java (as mentioned here).
