      Description

      Currently our buffer support is for flat buffer types as per the XATMI specification

      It would be useful to allow nested buffers to be supported, e.g. allow a collection of X_COMMON buffers to be returned

      We will need to add a new buffer type to support this.

      We currently have our own buffer type PBF (Portable Buffer Format)

      I would recommend to repurpose and renamed this as the Nested Buffer Format (BT_NBF)

      We need to rename all references of PBF to BT_NBF

      This buffer format should allow:
      X_OCTET
      char[]
      X_COMMON
      adds: short, long, char, short[], long[]
      X_C_TYPE
      adds: int, float, double, int[], float[], char[]
      BT_NBF
      adds: X_OCTET, X_COMMON, X_C_TYPE, BT_NBF, X_OCTET[], X_COMMON[], X_C_TYPE[], BT_PBF[]
      (THE ARRAY TYPES SHOULD SUPPORT UNBOUNDED INDEX COUNTS!)
