    63     63           
    64     64   Both directories and empty files have sqlar.sz==0.  Directories can be
    65     65   distinguished from empty files because directories have sqlar.data IS NULL.
    66     66   The file is compressed if length(sqlar.blob)<sqlar.sz and is stored
    67     67   as plaintext if length(sqlar.blob)==sqlar.sz.
