Actually, one can burn any kind of file to DVD. Even a tarball.

Not tarballs >= 2GB.  I've had to use "split" to reduce them to
something < 2GB in size and write the individual split files into an ISO
image that can then be burned.  Which means I have to use "cat" to
re-read them back into the original large file when I want to access it.
 a real PITA.

This should work, I accudently did something akin to that with a CD some years ago.

growisofs -Z /dev/hdc=big.tar

as will burning an ext2 filesystem in a file.
