Comment (by cypherpunks):

 First segment used as source for entropy test to decide if stat analysis
 for stream need. But it's somehow too complex.
 Tested with a first segment of 256 bytes. For non modified obfs4 it
 triggers detection reliably. If to replace random padding with zeroes
 (segment contains elligator-2 and zeroes then) then no detection happens.
 But if to keep size of segment (still with elligator-2 as non zero bytes
 only) to mss then detection happens (thought not so reliably).
