Binary syntax is very nice!

The binary syntax in R7 is *useful*.  I'm now thinking about using Erlang
as a general purpose data-munging language--much like Perl is for text.
Kinda pushes Erlang even more toward being a Big Language, but in this case
I think it was worth it.  A pat on the back to everyone involved!

[In case anyone missed it, a beta release of R7 is available from]
