I'm about to move from 1 file / track to 1 file / disc scheme.
It works great with CDs, but not with DVDs (and I guess BDs too) because they often have separate stereo and multichannel streams, so I have to use 2 files anyway.
How about support for putting them together? (And maybe compressing together?)

I think it is out of the scope of WavPack to provide a general multimedia container format, so I recommend using the multimedia container format Matroska for something like this, since it is its intended purpose to allow multiplexing of multimedia streams. mkvtoolnix/mkvmerge(GUI) handles WavPack files just fine. Main problem is the playback of those files: While, for example, foobar2000 will play the main track just fine, I it is impossible to access the additional audio streams. You'd have to use a full-fledged multimedia (video) player for that. A solution for that problem would be to append all the input files, which can be done with mkvmerge(GUI), and create a chapter layout with a chapter for every track/stream. Then foobar2000 will be able to play every chapter, since it supports Matroska chapters. Shoot (PM) if you need any more pointers.
