you do this:

regardless of pkt->size, which results in two questions:
1) can this sometimes crash
2) might this leak information from the user's system

concerning 2) I think it is an important criteria that the muxers do not
store any data beyond what the media contains, not like that funny .doc
format that contains traces of past revisions...
