Not to be "that guy" but... why not ASN.1? Sure the new shiny wore
off decades ago, but it's more broadly supported even than PB and
had all that extra time to get the corner cases cleared of cobwebs.
I know this particular train has already sailed, but PB just always
struck me as though it were either designed by someone who had no
idea the same problems had already been solved long ago, or who
didn't (want to be bothered to) read the X.690 spec.
