The OP asked for a way to encode/decode data to/from a
ACE_Message_Block. Within my use (and possibly the OP's use), the
approach I posted ALWAYS works because I control exactly where it is

For more industrial, complete, portable usage patterns such as network transmission over heterogeneous architectures, I agree that a "proper" serialization approach would be required. But this requirement was not in the original request.
