No, I didn't, In the end I've used a woody mkisofs and the woody
silo. If _they_ don't work together, then things are screwed
altogether. That's how the r0 and r1 images are made, as far as I
know. Yes or no?

<sigh> A mirror is a mirror. It's getting ludicrous to expect people
to set up a completely separate woody-only mirror to build CDs. All
the other architectures work fine in this scenario.
