I guess that we could check for <cdrom>/.disk/info to see if it's a 
debian CD. This file does contain a short description of the CD (it's used
by dpkg-multicd mainly).

Well the .disk/info file does contain the CD number. Actually (with YACS)
it does generate something like that :
Debian GNU/Linux $(CODENAME) (unofficial) binary-$(ARCH) $num/$nb $DATE

For the official images of course, we'll remove the unofficial and we'll
add the version number (2.2).
