Note: Technically our CBOR implementation should be pretty easy to use 
standalone, it has almost no dependencies to RIOT (despite the 'net_help.h' 
include, which could be easily replaced by arpa/inet.h).

And yes: I'd love to contact the cbor.io guys regarding our CBOR 
implementation and link to us, but unfortunately that doesn't make a lot of 
sense when it stays inside the RIOT code base. People cannot make use of it
