The main advantage is generality. It doesn't assume that a file format
has just one backing file, and doesn't require new syntax wherever a
file is referred to indirectly.


FWIW, with blockdev, we need options to control this all anyway. If you go back to my QCFG proposal, the parameters would actually be format specific, so if we had:

-block file=fd:4,format=fancypantsformat,part0=hd0-back.part1,part1=hd0-back.part2...

Yeah. We either name the formal argument (your proposal) or the actual argument (mine).
