Matthew's suggestion is denser, which is nice.

At that point, it would be neither BE nor LE. But the "LE-like" version would be

len = data[0];
if (len & 128)
len += data[1] << 7;

which ends up having a tiny bit more range (it goes to 11^H32895).

Of course, if the range is expected to be just 0-300, I guess that
matters not one whit.
