One big problem to note is that doing binary from Javascript is a
non-trivial problem: fundamentall JS is character-based, and only has
access to binary data via extensions. But hopefully one of extensions
becomes de facto standard...
Many codecs that claim to work do not, for example protobuf js lib
seemed totally broken last I looked.
