and i already have one wishlist item:
the 2 slip objects currently have a maximum slip package length of 1006
i know that rfc1055 mentions this maximum size, however:
- the restriction is there to keep compatibility with a 1983
- it greatly reduces the useability e.g. it won't help for transmitting
long OSC-messages (e.g. OSC bundles)

for one thing, i don't think that [slipdec] should have a size restriction.
usually such implementations should be conservative at the sender side,
but liberal at the receiver side.
(it probably would be nice if the user could clear the current decoding
buffer without output - just in case...)

i would also like, if [slipenc] would have a user-settable maximum size
(of course, defaulting to 1006), so one could produce larger packages on
this is not high priority, as it is easy to repack a number of slip
packages into a single one, but still...
