    That's sidestepping the *real* issue - which is that you need reasonable semantics
    even if you don't have cdfs or whatever special gee-wizz-bang driver handy.

    Consider an embedded system - it may have iso9660 support, and boot off a CD
    like Knoppix, but not have cdfs. What do you do then?

    (For bonus points, figure out the security issues involved in dealing with an intentionall
    corrupted image on a CD......)
