Ahem.  Pardon me for answering you without reading your patch.  I  
have now read your patch and it does more than just remove the calls  
to "tell".  In fact it looks very fine.

It makes more like in that it "just knows" what the  
offsets into the header are.  I think I like that (especially the way  
you use the struct format string to compute the second offset).  It  
also removes that nagging question at the back of my mind: "why does use tell when it could simply just know the offsets, which  
are constant anyway?".

And it works.  How cool is that?  I had changed my project to use  
sunau anyway, because that worked with pipes already.

Tests, you say...
