I have started to use the bytestring-show package, since I need to 
serialize a big data structure in a lazy bytestring.

However I have noted some possible problems with the API:

- sometime it is used the put<xxx> prefix, other times the show<xxx>
- the module Text.Show.ByteString, IMHO, should re-export the Put class
   from the Data.Binary.Put.

Thanks to the author of the package.
