This is a property of the individual entry, not the stream as a whole,
isn't it?  Why would you want to know that (just curious)?  We could
probably make the general purpose flags available and you could look at
bit 3.

I'm not sure what you mean, could you describe what happens under what
circumstances in more detail?  I see that the data descriptor isn't read
anywhere and I see that the stream may fail if the data descriptor uses
the "unofficial signature" mentioned in appnote, is this what you mean?
