I have been giving some thought to this whole raw binary question in the
context of messaging and have to believe that a mode you can get into
but not out of seems very awkward. If I had my choice, I would prefer
a mode which still has enough structure that you can distinguish control
from data - whether this means looking for escape sequences and using
quote characters or having byte counts/framing conventions is a matter
of design choice. If I had to vote, I guess it would be against the
diode protocol (one-way - enter at your own risk...).
