Feature Request: Csplit Binary

Subject: Feature Request: Csplit Binary

       Hello.  I want to start off by saying that I really love
coreutils.  They are truly high quality reliable apps.  Sometimes I
have the need to do a context split on binary files.  Most recently, I
was working with an image from a corrupt CD that contained wav files
and had to split them up at the RIFF header to the zeros at the end.
There is no tool which currently does it, at least none turned up
after googling for a few hours.  It would be a real asset for more
than just file recovery.  For instance, instead of taking line numbers
+ or - the matched pattern, in binary mode csplit could take hex
offsets  I'd do it myself but I'm still learning C and those 1000 line
programs are pretty scary. .  Just an idea.

Thank You,
