	Alternatively, we can obviate the need for this external function by 
reverse engineering the relevant decode function, documenting it, and 
re-implementing it. I took a cursory glance and it looks like the LZO 
decoder is 1 (long) function that operates strictly on a bytestream.

	But, as usual, I could be vastly underestimating complexity...
