Hey, I was wondering if it might be possible to see bitfields extended so that they don't have to add to a multiple of a byte, and instead can just create an offset when reading/writing additional data. In a protocol I want to implement, flags denoting the presence or absense of a field are single bits

if you give me a couple weeks I might find time to work on it

Cool. I can't imagine a bitstream implementation being too difficult. I've seen a couple implementations that could be useful for reference.
If there's anything I can do to help build it, let me know
