[DEPRECATED] X-to-Y native pbcs

Patch status: Platform:


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.

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.
