Thanks, and I found out what the problem was, btw. Through a misuse of
the ruby library, bert, my test was encoding bert's binary output to C
escape sequences. Since erlang can *almost* decode those to the same
binary representation, I thought that was the intended behavior (which
is silly). Your "btw" comments and a couple side conversations nudged
me to realize this sillyness... much appreciated
