There are some (minor, imo) warts.

Would you mind sharing what you dislike about it (author speaking here)? Bamboo is stable and thus I cannot change it, but here are what I would consider its warts:

  • the tag byte probably shouldn't exist
  • crypto primitives should not be hardcoded into the spec (insisting on multiformat hashes in particular was probably a bad idea)
  • an entry should also include the accumulated size of all entries starting at the lipmaa link target

Other stuff:

  • I really wish I had used the terminology of skip-link and predecessor-link rather than lipmaalink and backlink
  • more flexible (monotonically increasing, accumulated) metadata beyond entry size
