At the risk of sounding stupid...

If IB is able to split up databases if they exceed 2 gigs why not just
split up the database at arbitrary sizes and put different chunks on
different drives. I suppose what is really needed is the ability to specify
where the individual tables go so I can tune my database the way I want.
I.e If I use two tables very frequently I want to be able to assign them
their own drives. In the old days this was an easy thing to do because
everything was not in one file. I guess it would not be so bad to return to
the bad old days when every object was it's own file in some circumstances.
