Feature to use external directory for roms

It would be nice, if there would be an possibilty to use an external directory from an external device as the roms dir. Or if the recalbox/share folder would be not on a fat volume, to use a symlink.... For example i have a 1 TB ext USB device, this is formatted in ext4 and i use it for several files. If i could place my roms in a directory on this volume this would be a nice feature.

In my opinion it is already documented: https://github.com/digitalLumberjack/recalbox-os/wiki/Mount-a-remote-samba-share-on-system-directory-(EN) https://github.com/digitalLumberjack/recalbox-os/wiki/Auto-mount-of-usb-in-place-of-share-partition-(EN)

There IS and option to change the share partition to an external drive, but this drive must be fomatted to FAT32 from what I understand. Is this true? Is there no way to make the share partition work on an ext4 partition? I have some pretty huge films that would not fit on a FAT32 system. PS: I am a bit of a noob with these things.

Hello! And the possibility to have an option to switch between the internal Recalbox folder Roms and other external USB via a menu option? Greetings!
