[Bug 12819] New: How do you decode this format on the server? There seems to be no definition of the format, apart from the definition of how to encode it. Expecting every implementer to reverse this algorithm seems prone to mistakes.

           Summary: How do you decode this format on the server? There
                    seems to be no definition of the format, apart from
                    the definition of how to encode it. Expecting every
                    implementer to reverse this algorithm seems prone to
                    mistakes.

of the format, apart from the definition of how to encode it. Expecting every
