Without reviewing the patch in detail +2 from me for this change.

For various reasons I was against configurable, multiple formats and especially 
the split format from the start [1] and that is without tests on Windows where 
I expect the split format to have even more problems thanks to slower file 
handling and IO in general.

Please push that change :-)
