I've worked with a number of implementations, both embedded and others (ranging from a PC under my desk, through dozen-node clusters to ~hundred nodes). For most cases, binary storage triumphed. Most often, we kept text based transport.

Again, transport and storage are different. While I prefer binary storage, most of my transports are text (at least in large part, some binary wrapping may be present here and there).
