/* This module handles reading and writing aewan-formatted files.
 * These functions provide an abstration layer for actual I/O,
 * nothing else. The document_save, layer_save, and other functions
 * call the functions herein. 
 *
 * When any functions herein find an error, they set an internal
 * static error description variable in addition to returning an error
 * code. You can query the error description through a call to
 * aeff_get_error()
 *
 * All aeff_read_* functions return bool indicating success or failure,
 * and set the internal error string on the latter case. They also take
 * label parameters, which they use to check whether the next piece
 * of data in the stream has that label (returning an error if it doesn't).
