As we already have a "compression" feature, perhaps a different term should 
be used for this feature to avoid confusion.  Maybe BlockAppend or 
BlockStrip? BlockRepeater?  I'm sure someone could come up with a really 
good term for this.

I don't know if they are common, but what about stripping the footer also? 
Do many codecs use a byte sequence to close their frame?
