Send it. I want.

Toys? Maybe. Tools that won't get much use, more likely. I have
used Marco's encoder to decode `od -t x1` streams, and keep the encoders
printed, glued, and handy for emergencies. Sometimes they're the best tool
(and not just the best available). Of course, the UTF-32 MPE isn't really a
tool, not even a toy, more of a punch line.
