Yes, that's a way to implement it.  However, the current solution does not
provide a 'binary port', but just two operations 'binary-write' and
'binary-read'.  Changing this into a binary-port style is not too
difficult per se, only guile's port subtype system is not too well suited
(IMO) for such 'strange' kinds of ports.
