I would gladly work on that if people would like, but considering that my code
was originally declined, I obviously don't fully understand the technical
requirements of the problem. I also don't want to "add another cook to the
kitchen" if there are enough already ;-)
It seems to me that dirfile support should read the FORMAT file and allow for
different on-disk sizes of each field (a.k.a binary file). There are many
possible ways to treat different framerates: interpolate to max SPF, have
separate index for every field, etc.
Anyway, as I said, I obviously don't understand the technical requirements
