Protocol buffers (a.k.a., protobuf) are Google's language-neutral,
platform-neutral, extensible mechanism for serializing structured
data - think XML, but smaller, faster, and simpler. You define how
you want your data to be structured once, then you can use special
generated source code to easily write and read your structured data
to and from a variety of data streams and using a variety of
languages (C++, Java and Python). You can even update your data
structure without breaking deployed programs that are compiled
against the "old" format.
