If it's accepted I can make the script stop checking sizes (or hack in
some kind of symlink detection). It strikes me as a very bad idea to
make the user randomly get the non-us version with the name that
indicates it is the us version though. That can make for very confusing
bug reports if the non-us version breaks something.

I might improve it for 3.0_r1, since the difference between r0 and r1
will not be a big deal for many people when getting cd's. I'm only
checking the first cd, but the code can have the names and sizes of all
the other cd's added to it in the configuration section. I suspect most
people want only one cd. I may add a check for source cd's.
