Presumably this makes writing the test in the next patch easier, but
some details in the commit message would make this obvious.

My python is not strong; it looks good overall, although I have a few
questions that may warrant a v3 before I give R-b.

Why STDOUT instead of STDERR? Is the redirection intentional?

pep8 doesn't like this comment style (it wants space after #). The file
is already unclean under pep8, but you shouldn't make it worse.

Is assert really the nicest control flow when early EOF is present? Or
is it because we are only using this in tests, where we don't expect
early EOF, so asserting is just fine for our usage?

Is it necessary to use join() on the empty string here, compared to just
returning the array slice directly?
