That may be true. But someone who has potato installed, and does a partial
upgrade, might not have the new version of mkisofs.
Seriously, if a mkisofs upgrade broke software that used it, the only way to
*guarantee* that partial upgrades don't cause software to break, is for
mkisofs to conflict with the older versions of packages that used it.
