Ok, don't know when but I'll use it :) 

Are you the author of the "Bin" module? I was sure I heard of binary
marshalling for haskell but did not remember where (and also I seem to
remember that Hal Daume III did something similar, did you work
together?) Do you distribute it as a separate library? I find it
necessary or so :)
