i actually think the iso filename is too long/descriptive given the location

there is already enough metadata in the path to let people know that the files
in the directory are iso images for woody for the i386 arch, so i prefer the
naming scheme we used to have of binary-i386-1.iso and so on.
i think something similar for jigdo would make sense, e.g
