Thanks for the suggestion.

This is pretty much what I've got already. I think the issue might be
to do with the way that big.Int doesn't appear to use two's complement
to encode the varint. Maybe what is happening is that the encoding is
isomorphic across say Java, .NET, Python and Ruby, but that the
big.Int library in Go is not encoding in the same way.
