This structure holds the in-stream metadata corresponding to the 'comment' header packet. The comment header is meant to be used much like someone jotting a quick note on the label of a video. It should be a short, to the point text note that can be more than a couple words, but not more than a short paragraph.
The metadata is stored as a series of (tag, value) pairs, in length-encoded string vectors. The first occurrence of the '=' character delimits the tag and value. A particular tag may occur more than once, and order is significant. The character set encoding for the strings is always UTF-8, but the tag names are limited to ASCII, and treated as case-insensitive. See the Theora specification, Section 6.3.3 for details.
In filling in this structure, th_decode_headerin() will null-terminate the user_comment strings for safety. However, the bitstream format itself treats them as 8-bit clean vectors, possibly containing null characters, and so the length array should be treated as their authoritative length.
