If it helps, druby sends binary objects (Marshal strings) preceded by a
4-byte record length; look at drb/drb.rb functions 'load' and 'dump'.
It uses 'pack' and 'unpack' to handle the record lengths. It might provide
enough of a hint for you to do what you need.

druby (a.k.a. DRb) is available from RAA.
