I'd prefer to have jigdo creators make an explicit choice in the
interface, rather than try to work it out automatically. It's easier
to not make mistakes that way. IMHO. Yes, I've chosen differently for
the make-image/jigit-mkimage clients - I want that to be as easy and
automatic as possible for the end users who shouldn't have to care.

I started on this last night, having found your gitlab setup etc. I
was hoping to set up a fork and send you a MR, but the separation of
libisofs, libisoburn and libburn into separate repos makes it a little
more awkward to work that way. :-/

Patch coming shortly, I promise!
