Thinking longer about this, if we detect a directory with all files 
named "segmentXX" in it, we could indeed just unpack all those into a 
new (sub)lar. This is similar to the idea of copying lar from one file 
to the other. Or we join all the segmentXX files back into one single 
file with entry point, segments etc. Then we could drop that information 
out of lar, making lar itself less complex.
