I'm not sure exactly what you're suggesting we change.
If you're talking about BLOCK_PADDING (which we don't actually use
right now since it defaults to 0), then we could probably just remove
it, but I'm not sure what would be the benefit (other than the handful
of source lines it removes, of course).
