I don't mind the wording as you suggest it (JFTR: it was cooked up by me and 
Thomas). Well, the whole idea is to read back the appropriate amount of bytes 
from the burnt media (this is the tricky part), well and piping these to a 
checksummer (the trivial part).

There is a separate patch waiting for review and approval at:


which explanins the problem and how to deal with it. This is reading back by: 
a) isosize and dd
b) check_debian_iso script Thomas has developed.
