The only problem I can see with straight iso9660 is the s (script)
protection bit for scripts... if IconX doesn't require the scripts to
be script-executable there shouldn't be any need for the extra stuff
(which is fine with me, since I have no way to test the Amiga-specific
extensions... I can only test if they break under Linux).

Chris, who hasn't programmed a damned thing under AmigaOS in at least
two years and would like to keep that streak intact :-)
