I'm interested as a user. I'm not familiar with the iostreams library
myself, but one of my colleagues tried to use it for binary files. He
found it very difficult (or impossible) to use the insertion and
extraction operators to handle binary format. I don't know how he
solved the problem, but I will suggest that he look at a new
binary_iostreams library, if it is ever accepted and released.
