rencode -- Reduced length encodings

A space-efficient Python serialization module based on bencode,
which can be used to decode strings from untrusted sources. Works well for complex, heterogeneous data structures with many small elements. The encodings take considerably less space than bencode, gherkin, and Recipe 415503 [1] for that use case, and this module is faster, too. (Source code), (Comparison).
