Private data.

The private data section is provided to store any information required that is not supported by the SCF standard. If the field in the header is 0 then there is no private data section. We impose no restrictions upon the format of this section. However we feel it maybe a good idea to use the first four bytes as a magic number identifying the used format of the private data.
