> javabin can be as efficient as a format like say thrift/protocol buffers if we do not
pay the price of a string per name. We can easily achieve it using a new type  KNOWN_STRING.

> KNOWN_STRING can be like an EXTERN_STRING but it is just that these are preconfigured
string names which is a map of index -> string . The known string list can probably have
a version . The client must be using a newer version known string list than the server . 
> an example looks like
> {code}
> 1:responseHeader
> 2:QTime
> 3:status
> {code}
> A newer version of the string list can add a new string at a new index but it must never
change the index of an existing string. This is similar to an IDL file of thrift/protocol
buffers but w/o any of those complexities
> So when an EXTERN_STRING is written it first looks up in the KNOWN_STRING map. If it
is present , it is written as a KNOWN_STRING instead of an EXTERN_STRING . The value will
be the index
