I clicked the wrong something in the middle of writing this and the 
above was sent prematurely.

The argument might look like this:

   <pointer>  <unsigned32> 7 </unsigned32> </pointer>

Boxes may be faster.  However, I think nested arrays (bugzilla 
enhancement # 555) might be faster than that.  Perhaps some sort of 
simple binary structure can compete in this.  Maybe some sort of 
standard IDL has an instance variation that can compete in this.

And... As I was trying to say.  Maybe some lines, items and words can 
provide the structure needed to represent this kind of thing.

I would tend to put work into a library stack and keep the external 
simple, but there might be some advantage to shifting work to the 
external when things look right.
