I wouldn't presume to think I know the details here, but as far as I can tell
the plain mount command treats it like a device, while using the loop device
treats it like a file.

It should still be possible to read from the CD like normal, but any
CD-specific fucntions will likely be disabled, although those are probably
implemented as ioctls anyway.

So.. try it, and see what you get.
