# In short, 'mozLz40\0' magic number + uint32le length + lz4 data.
#
# A comment in the file above claims that the magic number is 'mozLz4a\0', but
# this is incorrect, as demonstrated by the code next to the comment.
#
# Helpfully, Mozilla and python-lz4 chose the same length format, so I don't
# have to go out of my way to handle it.
