There's also the possibility to further use the ASCII character set to
"compress" the data stream.  Using special characters to separate fields
or to terminate fields, such as the null character (\0), `end of
transmission' (0x04) instead of \r\n.  One byte will definitely cut back
on the amount of space in each packet (albeit, by a tiny amount).
