Bug#605672: ITP: biniou -- Flexible binary data format in OCaml

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Sylvain Le Gall <gildor@debian.org>

* Package name    : biniou
  Version         : 0.9.1
  Upstream Author : Martin Jambon
* URL             : http://martin.jambon.free.fr/biniou.html
* License         : BSD3
  Programming Lang: OCaml
  Description     : Flexible binary data format in OCaml

Biniou is a binary data format designed for speed, safety, ease of use
and backward compatibility as protocols evolve. Biniou is vastly
equivalent to JSON in terms of functionality but allows implementations
about 4 times as fast (see godi-yojson for comparison), with 25-35%
space savings. Biniou data can be decoded into human-readable form
without knowledge of type definitions except for field and variant names
which are represented by 31-bit hashes.
