  Okay - is there a bit-level specification for the protocol? Or shall I
just assume that anything declared as an int/long is 32 bits, and
everything else 8? If the posix u_int32_t etc. are used then the code
will do the right thing across all the platforms (that have those
definitions, anyway, which probably means just linux).
