I'd like to point out that binary-ieee754 is dead slow[1] 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 

[1] ~30 times slower that reading/writing with peek/poke although I had 
to patch binary for that.
