so there will be broken symlinks in the cdrom, or package files with
description for files that doesn't exist, do dpkg -iGROEB will fail, and
you will not be able to install anything.
a) i don't like the idea to have cdroms of debian with bad symlinks. it
yust doen't look good.
b) i don't like the idea to have cdroms of debian with bad Package files
(the might include Packages that will not exist.
c) i don't like the idea to have cdroms of debain, that can not used to
install debian, because dpkg will fail of a) or b).
