In any case, I (and I have understood that I'm not the only one) was
hoping that the new protocol would have standard internet CRLF command
terminators, which will solve the problem in any case.

Which is precisely why we can't interact with nodes in that case. But
like I said before, the choice between a text based or binary protocol
is simply a stance we have to take. Shall we hold a poll?
Like Zdenek said in his first mail, endianess isn't a problem; after
all, that's what the htonX functions are for.
In any case, we need to decide on either a fully binary or fully text
protocol. There's no point at all in having some halfbreed stuff. Like
I've said, I believe in a text based protocol, since I think that both
hubs and clients have far worse things than just command parsing to
care about, but if the majority is against me, I will gracefully bow
and yield. Like I said, shall we hold a poll?
