Okay, I've implemented that and commited it for Woody. As the current scheme
produces usable potato CD's I'm reluctant to make such a major change if
there's not going to be another test cycle.

Just another point, did I see somewhere that certain mac kernels barf on
Joliet extensions? The m68k test cycle 2 CD are using them, so should they
be disabled before release?
