Description

In the past, Parrot has voiced supported reading of PBC files created on, and optimized for other platforms.

In practice this usually only worked for PBC files created on x86-linux boxes.

This support will be removed in favour of a PBC format specifically designed for network transport and portability. Every Parrot, regardless of platform, shall be able to create and read PBC files in this format. Native-optimized PBC will still exist, but will not be readable on other platforms.

Hello.

I think this ticket is very close to duplicate #451.

I like the direction of this proposal, but in the future please be sure to propose deprecations on parrot-dev, #parrotsketch or at least #parrot and file such tickets as RFCs.
