I thought briefly about this, but decided to implement a fixed size so
that someone could allocate, say, 8K of memory in their memory map
(likely flash) and know their blob would fit.
Maybe we need a little -s option to say "add -s bytes".
Jon suggested a --stats option to print out the important statistics.
That would also be a good enhancement.
