GMTA :) That's become my favorite packaging method for moving stuff
between standalones and servers.
While arrayEncode and arrayDecode are relatively intensive calls, for
arrays less than a few MBs in size they're measured in just millisecs,
ideal for processing on both ends as they're much faster than parsing
XML or other hierarchical formats.
In fact, the more I look into MongoDB the more arrayEncoded data bears
an inspiring similarity to BSON, but with the benefit that LiveCode is
so fast I can do everything I need without a stay-resident process on
the server. :) Not to mention the savings in overhead from not having
to translate BSON to JSON and back again.
