What source plugin can handle ALOT of .avs wrapped into .avi ?

I'm working with mjpeg .avi's, dubbed with .wav's using AviSynth and wrapped into .avi's using ffdshow's makeAVIS.
When I try to import alot of them in Vegas - it's just hangs or don't react or crashs.
I tried DirectShowSource and found that it has limit of 16 imported files at the same time. I tried FFVideoSource and it has limit of 64.
But I need atleast few hundreds. Does anybody knows which source plugin can handle this amount ?

Import 64 files using FFVideoSource, save as video_1-64.avs. Start a new script and begin with: Import("video_1-64.avs"), etc. Not sure though.

Nice to see the p0rn-industry is using open-source software

Are all MJPegs of identical size, colorspace etc ?
WAV's all same format ?

Post sample script your were trying with DirectShowSource.

EDIT: The below script seems to work OK in MS Media Player 2 (old XP version) up to about 80 clips.
Fails in VDubMod at 80 clips.
OK in Current VD up to about 80 clips

DEBUG       = True                                                          # Debug
OUT_FILE    = "FILE.List"
picclip = 0                         # dummy for now
    result=RT_WriteFileList(IN_FILES,OUT_FILE)                                  # Create a listing file of Pic files
    Assert((result!=0), "No files found")
    FILELIST=RT_ReadTxtFromFile(OUT_FILE)                                       # Get list of files
    FILES=RT_TxtQueryLines(FILELIST)                                            # Query Number of lines in String ie number of files.
    if(DEBUG){RT_Debug("Found files = " + String(FILES))}
#   FILES=80  # First 80 files only
    For(i=0,FILES-1) {
        FN=RT_TxtGetLine(FILELIST,i)                                            # Filename of avi file i
        if(DEBUG){RT_Debug(string(i)+ ")","Processing File",FN)}
        # Below line just makes sure all files compatible and dumps audio (tried clips were an odd mix)
        picclip = (IsClip(picclip)) ? picclip ++ k : k  # Append to  clip so far
RaffRiff42 post below should work just fine.

1. Assuming all are exactly the same format, frame rate, audio sample rate, etc, you can merge large numbers of video segments in VirtualDub. IIRC I have loaded over 600 in testing with no trouble whatsoever.
2. Once you have loaded all the segments, Frameserve to a signpost AVI.
3. Attempt to open signpost AVI in Vegas. If that doesn't work...
4. Wrap the signpost in an Avisyth script.
