What the heck is this?  Binaries must be a number of bits
divisable by 8 however the example Edmund gave doesn't give
an immediate error but instead returns siomething which 
actually isn't a binary!


Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.3 [source] [threads:0]

Eshell V5.3  (abort with ^G)
1> <<A:1, Rest/binary>> = <<255>>.
2> A.
3> is_binary(Rest).
4> Rest.
