    Implementation of new dump tag and length standard
    The implementation follows the specification from October 2007.
    All old tags are accecpted as before.
    New tags 0x06-0x60 (capital letters) are followed by a 1 byte length
    field which may contain directly the length (up to 127) or the length
    of the then following length field (max 8) ored with 0x80.
    New tags 0x61-0x77a are directly followed by 4 bytes building a 32bit
    0x7b-0xf are single-byte tags, 0x7e meaning next tag is critical.
    On this basis unknown tags can be skipped unless they were marked
    critical. In this case the restore is aborted.
    in dump.h tags following the new standard are marked by an asterisk
    Last update: added parameter types for HandleUnknownTag.
