[gdal-dev] concerning VSIInstallSubFileHandler

I am currently accessing datasets which are embedded inside a single file. Each dataset is a given file offset and length inside of the larger file.
I saw in the latest doxy-docs here that there is a VSIInstallSubFileHandler for doing just that, and look forward to testing it out. My concern with it, as well as the normal VSIMemFileHandler, is in accessing large files. I have 2 GB images, embedded within files that are up to 100 GB in size. Does the VSIMemFileHandler do any sort of paging so that the entire source image is not read into memory?
