 	That's what I was thinking.  The DVD-format is rather flexible on 
how DVDs are structured logically.  Multiple VOBs, multiple streams within 
a VOB, merging, linking, etc, etc... it's all defined in the IFO headers 
and the titleset construction.  Splitting into 1GB chunks or having 
multiple VTS's isn't a problem.  The larger concern is whether or not a 
particular set of streams is compatible with the DVD format... like a DVB 
recording with multiple substreams.
