blaze-builder already implements the "binary" builder interface, minus
the putWord* functions. I think those would be trivial to reimplement
on top of Write.

Since it sounds like everyone agrees with / has already thought of
moving Builder into bytestring, I'll start poking at a patch. Who is
the current patch-reviewer for binary and bytestring?
