How exactly do you propose that apt-cdrom determine that these two random
trees of stuff are actually the same tree of stuff? Current apt-cdrom will
not properly handle CD's made like this, so you've broke that.
Frankly, I have no idea how I'd make it able to detect this that doesn't
end up being excessively difficult.
