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  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 :-)
