A question which came up in a discussion this morning. Does PDF allows filesize to be greater than 4 GB?
Discussion was about tifftools, and if/when they would grow 'big' too.
Would these tools become bigtiff specific or would they handle bigtiff and classic tiff transparantly? Linking them with both lib's could introduce namespace conflicts I guess. Having separate tools for classic and big would give double code bases for every tool implying a serious synchronisation effort.
