From notes/dump-load-format.txt:

    Revision-number: <N>
    Prop-content-length: <P>
    Content-length: <L>
    ... <P> gives the length in bytes of the following property section.
    <L> gives the body length of the entire Revision record. These two
    numbers will be *identical* for a Revision record; ...
(emphasis in the original)

So it would be useful for the parser to set both headers when parsing
a Revision-number headers --- and to warn if one of them is absent, or
if they are set to different values.
