There is a data block size. In every page. Ogg is designed for streaming, so
it can't be a single value.

You can either add all these up, or just take the total size and subtract
the size of the header packets (which are given by 
page->header_len + page->body_len, for each of the pages which contains
header packets (page->granulepos == 0)).
