Right now the buffer library only alows to write strings and reading is
actually getting the contents of the whole buffer and parsing it
A way to get specific data types or simply read in chunks would be
better, but in that case it would probably be a good idea to create a
"serialized" data type like in my "FIO" suggestion, even just to avoid
implementing multiple times the same things in different places.
