Is there anything in the VDR plugin API that would prevent a plugin
from implementing a suitable output device?

I will most likely change this when going to TS recording format.
In doing so, I'd like to get rid of splitting recordings into separate
files altogether. However, I think there might be people who still
want this feature - any comments?

I won't go for full 64 bit file sizes, though, because I'd like
the index records to still fit into 8 byte. Using 6 byte for the
file index would result in 256 TB for a single recording (or 128 TB
if we avoid 'unsigned'), which I guess should be large enough ;-)
