the Ogg related code that builds/extracts headers in extra data
stores 2 bytes' worth of the packet size, so this means large ogg
packets will be mishandled (eg, a 64 KB packet will be seen as
a 0 bytes packet when 'decoded').
Is there a particular reason why this is so, or just because 64 KB
ought to be enough for everybody ? :)
Id there any gotcha I should know about before I try to change this ?
