Not really, but the codec has more control over what happens to
the stream, ie. it's easier to implement look-ahead in the codec
than to do the detection and then try to push the bytes back onto
the stream (which may or may not be possible depending on the
nature of the stream).

I'm sure Walter will do a great job in maintaining the code :-)
