I've always wondered how lossless audio compressors cope with the fact
that there is only a 1 in FRAMESIZE probability that the total number of
input frames will be evenly divisible by FRAMESIZE.

Suddenly, it becomes clear why nearly every lossless audio compressor
feels that it needs a custom container.
