sugestion: Use carvpath anotations

I see the use of colons in byte_runs content. Earlier versions of libcarvpath used such a notation, but cross platform concerns resulted in this being changed into the plus sign. I would suggest that the | CarvPath annotation format may be a suitable alternative for annotating byte_runs content. This is a straight forward and simple format, for example:

 4096+53248_258048+28672_S1047552

Would be the way to annotate a byte_runs consisting of:

1) A 53248 byte fragment at offset 4096 2) A 28672 byte fragment at offset 258048 3) 1047552 bytes of sparse data.

I don't suggest adding long token notations. Just the '+', '_' and 'S' stuff.
