Program to split Ogg Theora files?

Does anyone know of any programs that can split ogg theora videos? I know of oggsplt, but that's only for ogg vorbis audio files. I don't want something that requires any decoding/re-encoding, just a simple split. A web search turned up oggztools, but I can't find anything in the manpages for this that actually explain whether it's possible to use oggztools to split files, or how you'd do it.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Splitting to make smaller playable files or splitting for transport and later reassembly?

If the later then simply using the split command on the original file will let you break it into smaller pieces. You can then simply use the cat file to reassemble it after transport.

I'd like the files to be playable in their split form. Thanks for the tip though.
