Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (COMPRESS-407) Validate Block and Record Sizes

------------------------------------------------------------------

I disagree with enforcing the record size to be 512 bytes. Even if this is the only value
valid according to the spec, it has been possible to set it to a different value in the past
(and shoot yourself in the foot, I know). People who have used a different value i the past
should remain able to do so IMHO, if it worked for them until now I don't see any reason to
stop them from doing it.
