You have to decide whether the GPL is a completely unusable license or whether
there is no problem with mkisofs.....

I am afraid that we will not solve the problems of the shortcomings of GPL
here. The question is whether or not we can solve the problems of the
different reading of the GPL for the purposes of this one program, mkisofs.

I understand that in the legal theory you have about the programs there is no
problem, while under the theory espoused by Debian and many other
distributions there is a problem. Lets not try to solve everything here, but
only the one thing-- mkisofs. As I have said, the users would thank you.
