"Protocol buffers are now Google's lingua franca for data – at time of
writing, there are 48,162 different message types defined in the
Google code tree across 12,183 .proto files. They're used both in RPC
systems and for persistent storage of data in a variety of storage
systems."

They're using it over XML, which I find noble (apparently XML has too
much overhead even if you have thousands of machines, who would have
known?), but protocol buffers it is no UBF.  :-)
