  Description     : Minimalistic protocol buffer decoder and encoder in C++

protozero is a minimalistic protocol buffer decoder and encoder in C++.

Designed for high performance. Suitable for writing zero copy parsers
and encoders with minimal need for run-time allocation of memory.

Low-level: this is designed to be a building block for writing a very
customized decoder for a stable protobuf schema. If your protobuf schema
is changing frequently or lazy decoding is not critical for your
application then this approach offers no value: just use the decoding
API available via the C++ API that can be generated via the Google
Protobufs protoc program.

The protozero headers are required for libosmium >= 2.3.0 that currently
bundles a copy of protozero in its source as it does for the utfcpp
headers too. utfcpp is already packaged for Debian and is used instead
for the libosmium Debian package.

A drawback of protozero is the current lack of big endian support, see:

The protozero package will be maintained within the Debian GIS team
along with libosmium.
