Hmm, I don't have 10GB even on my whole disks ;-((
Moreover, I cannot reformat them so simply, therefore I implemented another
method using one temporary directory on each partition.
It duplicates the trees on each partition and put the hard links in the right
mkisofs then grabs the partial trees from each partition and merges them in
only one (works well with mkisofs 1.12b3; don't know about 1.11).

I'm about to write the last lines of this implementation.  I will then post
the patch (against 0.95) as soon as it will be almost bug free (as far as I
can test it).

Best wishes.
