What i meant is that currently, based on the value of err, most (or all) 
decoders with frame crc checking either check for data integrity and drop 
the frame if it's damaged, or don't check anything.
The user can choose to enable or disable the check, but the frame being 
dropped or not if it's damaged is decided by the decoder (Returning < 0 or 

I'm not sure what's best as default, but i think we should add a flag or
option to let the user choose to do a crc check without dropping the
frame (Only showing a warning) aside from the current "check, warn and drop" 
behavior every decoder is using.
