That was very helpful, thanks again.  I have written a (partial)
implementation of it in Haskell, it works and it is fun.  Now, the
Haskell programs my Yaws script call can send back Erlang terms :-)
(The FLOAT_EXT part could use some clarification.)

Is the atom cache described in the above document used anywhere?  Not
in binary_to_term, it seems, at least if I understand it correctly.
It's a pity, it looked like a good idea.
