I've a quick remark: I think that text archives ultimately, should
do some conversion (e.g. base64) in write_binary method. If this a "text"
archives, then they should really be usable as text files, for example,
doing 'cat' on them should never do anything wrong to console, and
transferring over any medium should be save.
As it stands, even forgetting to open the stream in binary mode will destroy
