I reckon it's worth making it obvious that this library does 754 and
not, say, 1394 or 802.11 ;-) On the other hand if you intend on
expanding the package to implement every IEEE standard ... (j/k)

Anyway, good work. Does this have any overlap with
data-binary-ieee754? There was some recent discussion here about the
encoding speed in that package.
