Transmitting Haskell values

I think the standard way would be to use Show and Read and then 
send/write/rcv/read strings from the network/disk.  Or you could use the 
Binary class to get binary representations, but these (sometimes, 
depending on which implementation you use) have endianness issues if 
you're transmitting between different architectures.
