Considering that there are also file systems out there with similar 
limitations*, wouldn't it be a good idea to start a new file when the 2GB limit 
is reached? I can even see advantages besides the given limitations, e.g. 
backing up many 2GB files on DVD is much easier than one 10GB file.

I would suggest the following solution: Make the default file format optional, 
but also add an option "split files into 2GB chunks". For file formats with a 
2GB limit, this option should always be active.

Does that sound reasonable?

* AFAIK FAT32 is still a popular FS for shared partitions on dual boot 
Linux/Windows systems, and also on external hard disks. And NFS used to have a 
2GB limit as well.
