for the record: Max abandoned binary patch storage format quite
some time ago.  They tend to use JSON now for pretty much
everything, and it works well.

Declarative format is more flexible and easier to extend than
procedural, explicitly stack-based representation.  Moreover, with
JSON come tools and standards.  One example: ECMA Script 5 defines
very precisely, how to stringify numbers...
