Another downside is working out what mc does amd applying it in a
what we might suppose is a scripting situation. The effort is too
much. For a non-scriptable solution it wins hands down.

Anyway, here is Plan B. The Wanderer should like it because there
is no root involvement. Richard should be over the moon because it
is all command line processing and can be scripted if desired.


  mkdir ISO


  bsdtar -C ISO -xf /media/distributionA/DVD1.iso

Two commands and nirvana looms on the horizon.
