Hmm - Changing this isn't something I've considered when it comes to ABI
compatibility.  I also see that there is no mention of the maximum
record length in the stream spec, which is an oversight.

Worse still, there is no record length check in the python utilities,
but both sides of the C code perform the check.

Let me ponder the implications.
