1. Up until now, the error message for EBML numbers whose length exceeds
the limits imposed upon them because of the element's type did not
distinguish between known-length and unknown-length elements. As a
consequence, the numerical value of the define constant
EBML_UNKNOWN_LENGTH was emitted as part of the error message which is
of course not appropriate. This commit changes this by adding error
messages designed for unknown-length elements.

2. We impose some (arbitrary) sanity checks on the lengths of certain
element types; these checks were conducted before the checks depending
on whether the element exceeds its containing master element. Now the
order has been reversed, because a failure at the (formerly) latter
check implies that the file is truly erroneous and not only fails our
arbitrary length limit. Moreover, this increases the informativeness of
the error messages.

3. Furthermore, the error message in general has been changed by replacing
the type of the element (something internal to this demuxer and
therefore suitable as debug output at best, not as an error message
intended for ordinary users) with the element ID. The element's position
has been added, too.

4. Finally, the length limit for EBML_NONE elements has been changed so
that all unknown-length elements of EBML_NONE-type trigger an error.
This is done because unknown-length elements can't be skipped and need
to be parsed, but there is no syntax to parse available for EBML_NONE
elements. This is done in preparation for a further patch which allows
more unknown-length elements than just clusters and segments.
