there is also haskell-based language named Clean, look at it too :)

1) most of these libs derived from GHC module Binary and therefore has the
same interface

2) best is my own library (see http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Library/AltBinary )
what can be simpler than this:

import Data.AltBinary
main = putWord32 stdout (1::Int)

? :)  just download www.haskell.org/library/Streams.tar.gz or
