Both Theepan and Vance are correct in that this is a useful way to
build this kind of thing. In fact, there's a good example (using a
gen_server, rather than a gen_fsm) here:

I'd just add one point, though: I recently built something similar,
and I found it simpler to separate the client into two processes: one
gen_fsm to handle the state machine, and a separate gen_server to
handle the decoding and framing.
