A very interesting idea - and potentially very useful.

I'm not sure "out of core" is a great name - since we haven't used core
memory in 25 years as far as I know.

I faced this problem some time ago. The problem is was the file sizes over
2GB were supported by the standard fopen, etc on windows. I don't rememeber
how I dealt with unix. I endup making an reimplementing of fopen, fseek in
terms of windows API. (wfopen? - I don't rememeber). At the same time I
also implemented wrappers for posix async i/o around the very unwieldy
windows async API.

I have no idea if this information is useful
