There is an intermediate position between
 - manually writing packing and unpacking code
 - representing the type structure as a data structure
   and interpreting it at run time
and that is
 + writing a "pickler compiler" in Erlang that takes a
   data structure representing a packet structure and
   generates Erlang source code for packing and unpacking,
   which you can then call.
