probably if I had it all to do again I would have constrained
the possible block sizes, which would have made it more
practical to put the frame length in the frame header.  but
the bad news is that there is no way to determine the frame
length except by decoding.

I'm not exactly sure what the read constraint you mention
means but it might be helpful to tweak the value for
to be something larger (just guessing).  that value should
probably be exposed in the API.
