Yes, of course.  One of the main reasons I wrote it was to remove
the 6.8Meg limit on the files created by libole2.  LibGsf correctly
handles meta-BATs (I hope).  The main limitation is that it it does
not support adding a stream to and existing file, you need to write
the entire file everytime.  However, but it does support large and
small blocks fully (even if the block sizes are non-standard).  It
should even be able to handle some of the common naming problems,
and support utf8 file names.
