Comment Three Headers, Not Two (Score 1) 257

> The solution proposed by the author: two headers and error correction code (ECC) in every file."

When there are two possibilities, which one do you chose? Three allows the software to have a vote among the headers, and ignore or correct the loser (assuming that there IS one, of course).

Also, keeping the headers in text, rather than using complicated encoding schemes to save space where it doesn't much matter, is probably a good idea, as well. Semantic sugar is your friend here.
