BER is all very well, but it turns out that it's better to store the
offset as either a byte (if <256), or a 0 byte with a STRLEN before.
"better" in that the reading can be inlined, and even then the object
code is smaller (function calls have space overhead). So goodbye
Perl_sv_read_offset() and hello SvOOK_offset().
