We've thought about this before, and decided not to do it. The split
we've gone with is (maybe) useful for some people where they may be
able to write the larger (BD/DLBD) images to optical media. But even
these cover only a very small proportion of our userbase.
For full copies of the archive like that, you'd be much better off
simply using a normal filesystem and creating a mirror on it.
