What would be the first thing to do after you get the treatment making you negligibly senescent?
Lots of people would just do the same things. Also many actually interesting ideas.

FlatBuffers: a memory efficient serialization library | Hacker News
HN thread on protobufs, capnproto, and flatbuffers. Authors are present
PR takeaways:
(on zero-copy) "memory bandwidth is actually a big reason why you should not want to transform things upfront. You see, if you have an upfront transformation, you're streaming the data into the CPU, then back out in the new format, and then reading it back in again later on when you actually use it. If your data is small enough, perhaps it all stays in cache and this isn't an issue. But if it's large, then you're doubling or tripling your memory bandwidth usage by having a decode step."
"At the time I chose Protobufs, it was the best option, but avoiding the encode/decode is a big win on an async. server that is handling 50,000 connections. Saving a few bytes here and there on the wire is much less important than blasting messages out and consuming them as fast as possible. This can also mean queueing as much of the work to be done by another process on the server side after the consumption of a message (i.e., work queues)."

"[capnproto is] a serialisation format that's specifically designed so that data structures in this format can be used as-is by programs, without unnecessarily copying data into or out of the format to use it. The RPC layer is then built on top of that, but the format could also be used for mmapped files, etc."

"[capnproto] can use the serialization layer without linking in the RPC layer"
