I don't like making the custom format more flexible (i.e. non- 
streamable). It would work nicely for languages whose design and  
programming culture are ok with slurp IO, byte strings and liberal  
use of heap space and regexps on bytes. However, it wouldn't be as  
nice for languages like Java that promote streaming IO and don't have  
flexible byte strings or byte-oriented regexps.
