It also occured to me this-afternoon that it should be possible to use 
something like btrfs to paste extents of a file together.

I'm not the first person to think of that; google for 

I was unable to find anyone who'd managed to do it.

Of course, you've probably replaced your fairly simple "cat files 
together" to "move everyone to another filesystem" and possibly "move 
everyone to another operating system"....
