I need to do a second document, as I’ve had some thoughts on other potential ways to attack v2… :/

Basically TWKB could be done by sticking a “geom is twkb” flag into the extflags, but then you get twkb only at the expense of the extra 8 bytes of xflags. Which, since twkb is only really useful for quite large things, is maybe a reasonable thing to do.
