I'd like to point out that binary-ieee754 is dead slow and not usable
when one cares about performance. IMHO lack of ways to serialize
floating point data in IEEE754 format is one of the problems of binary
 ~30 times slower that reading/writing with peek/poke although I had
to patch binary for that.
