For the Tiff / LZW savy...

I noticed the tif_lzw.cpp code does not check for an EOI at the end of a read.

(It's OK, we're licensed to use it).

Is the EOI a required delimiter code for a block of LZW encoded data?

It seems that most tiff readers don't bother to look for it as long as they get the amount of image data they've requested.
