If a move toward machine-independent representation seems reasonable,
it may be worth looking at some of the binary data exchange formats
used by nasa and others,

	CDF http://nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov/cdf/cdf_home.html
	netCDF http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/packages/netcdf/index.html
	HDF http://hdf.ncsa.uiuc.edu/

There may also be something useful in the "Scientific Data Format
Information FAQ"
