Default Musepack bitstream format

Once upon a time I got sick and tired of broken mp3 files floating around and wrote a small utility called mp3ck that just parsed MPEG frames and ID3 tags one by one to see if their stream was continuous. The utility made no attempt to actually decode the stream, but it proved to catch most defects that resulted from broken transfers over the net, buggy FTP and HTTP servers, etc.

With more and more files in Musepack format appearing around, I'd like to extend my little utility to verify such files, too, if possible at all. However, I failed to find a document on the format except for the source code. Is there any out there? Of course, I mean a rather cursory description allowing one just to parse the stream.
