    isofs in 2.3.x (for suitable values of x, certainly >=15) has a
    session= parameter that you should be able to pass in via mount.

    What would be even more interesting is for cdrom block devices to make
    multiple sessions appear as partitions -- assuming people don't ever put
    _real_ partition tables on CD-ROMs, of course.
