The info/build header varies.
- Phiscally distributed content: contains build information, the same which is sometimes extracted from WAD-files in a single 0x40-byte file. It's always a one-word name, followed by a dot, which is followed by a 10-byte timestamp, format YYMMDDHHMM. Offset 0x30 contains the username@host identifier for the build.
- Downloadable content (Weather, News, VC..): it contains a one-word name at offset 0x00, and the 8-byte Title ID at offset 0x20. Offset 0x28 contains the channel version (u16).
