I'm currently up to my neck in alligators, but maybe in a few weeks I
can visit boxes again. I hope to get it to the point where I can put
it on the web site and make it available.
I like the idea of XML/box translation. Because of that, I might
remove the ASCII text representation option.
I need to check, but I think the internal number representation might
have endian problems in the binary version as far as portability among
platforms. If XML is the way to move data, then this is less
important, too. Maybe all portability features can be removed.
Do you use the chunking interface or do you use the iterator interface
