Is it possible to have a database spread across two data files?
So if it fills up filesystem1 then we could add a second filesystem and
allow it to grow onto this second filesystem?

Ah - manual reference
"24.2. Disk Full Failure
The most important disk monitoring task of a database administrator is
to make sure the disk doesn't grow full. A filled data disk may result
in subsequent corruption of database indexes, but not of the tables
themselves. If the WAL files are on the same disk (as is the case for a
default configuration) then a filled disk during database initialization
may result in corrupted or incomplete WAL files. This failure condition
is detected and the database server will refuse to start up. "
