Comment #1 on issue 689 by xiaof...@google.com: Repeated fields do not
serialize the 'size' into the file. Hence deserialize of repeated expects
an unending sequence of repeated fields
This is by design. Protobuf fields are serialized as <tag, value> pairs.
The parsing routine will check the tag to decide whether a value belongs to
a repeated field and act accordingly. There could be a potentially infinite
number of such <tag, value> pairs in an input stream, but in practice, the
size of a message is usually already known before parsing. For example,
when you send a protobuf message over the wire, you'll first send the size
of the data before serialized bytes of the message.
