|Subject:||[RFC] bytes method in numerical types?|
This would add a .bytes method (or similarly-named) that returns a Blob containing the Numeric's data. This would be the natural representation of the Numeric, and would take an optional parameter specifying endianness (should it be ignored for Num or give an error?) This would be useful in serializing data (to write to a file or a socket). A reverse method would be useful as well.
