File split (e.g. FAT USB drives)

Dear all,

a feature, that I think would be very beneficial, is the possibility for a VrC container to span more than one file.

The use case I am thinking of are portable media, especially USB sticks: In oder to use them without problems on different platforms, the bad old FAT format has become a pseudo-standard, ending us up in a situation, where we have 64GB+ media with a maximum file size of 4G-1. The possibility to have a VrC volume split over more than one file at 2G boundaries (just as with VMDK files) would overcome this, giving us the possibility to run a volume whatever size without having to deal with FS issues when exchanging data between platforms.
