[erlang-questions] BERT vs protobuf in the erlang world

BERT is pretty much a "known good quantity" but protobuf is more
efficient on the wire.

Anyone have thoughts on which to go with?

Also, along the BERT side, does anyone have recommendations on AS3 and
Java implementations of the marshallers?

The downside(s) to protobuf - hard IDLs and you have to build the
project and generators.
The downside(s) to BERT - less efficient on the wire (verbosity.)

TIA!
