Can I split a large (4G+) bzip2 file into smaller bzip2 files? Notes:

 % Obviously, 'split' won't work for 2 reasons:

  % Each chunk won't have the BZIP2 header

  % 'split' will cut the file inside a bzip2 "block", rendering the
  first/last blocks of each file unreadable.

We're just a Bunch Of Regular Guys, a collective group that's trying
to understand and assimilate technology. We feel that resistance to
new ideas and technology is unwise and ultimately futile.
