Subject Re: Incubation proposal for [flatfile] component

That looks interesting, this kind of structure can still be found today 
in ar and cpio archives used for deb and rpm packages. I also used this 
style of file in inter bank communications a few years ago.

That would be awesome if the component was able to operate on binary 
files too, you would define the structure in a DSL like language and map 
it to your beans. Just dreaming :)

Do you plan to implement push/pull parsing (maybe it already does).

Are there any similar open source projects ?
