That's not a problem (as long as directory permissions are handled,
which Thomas Schmitt's more-complex commandset should address). I was
just warning about the possibility that if the file exists under the
same path in two different ISOs, one of the two would get replaced by
the other.

Thomas Schmitt's post appears to contain exactly the "similar,
more-complex twiddlings" I had in mind, plus some tweaks to address
concerns I hadn't even known existed. I've marked it as noteworthy on my
own end, for my own later reference.
