Hi S?bastien,

At work I have some Python code to decode AIS[1] messages, for which I 
created my own code for handling binary data. It works, but is pretty 
slow. Not surprising, since handling data at the bit level is not 
exactly Python's strength. If I find the time, I'll try to replace my 
code with your bitstream and see if it does what I need it to do, and if 
it's any faster.

If/when I actually get around to it, I'll keep you informed.
