At the design level, I have a large problem with this change. I
understand that you wanted to make sure that some versions can lack
the num-entries word in the header, but then what is the point of
keeping that "+20" here? Are all versions of the file format still
required to have the 20-byte trailing SHA-1 sum over the whole file?
Side note: I am actually fine with that "sum at the end"
requirement, but then it needs to be documented what are
assumed to be unomittable and why.
I also do not see why v5 *needs* to drop the num-entries
word from the header in the first place.
At the practical level, we used to error out, upon seeing a file
that claims to be v2 in the header but is too small to hold the
version header, the number of entries word and the trailing SHA-1
sum. We no longer do this and happily call verify_hdr() in the
following code even when the file is too small, no?
