  Thanks!  I tried it a bit and I'm officially impressed with its
performancce ^^;

  I had a simple serializer/materializer that only handles class
definitions and compiled methods (and initialization of classes).  But
Fuel seems faster than that for a factor of two or so for reading
methods.  (Mine was more on simplicity so it has only a few methods
and does some slow way to read sized-strings, as well as generous 4
byte padding.  It does make difference when it comes to performance.)
