There's already a protobuf based format in Drizzle that is far more
understandable. The trick is to process everything server side as a
bunch of the oddities in FRM file are rather baked into the server
(e.g. storing the default row image).

This would also be a rather large incompatibility with Oracle MySQL
which perhaps isn't a wise thing.
