First off, I'd say anything that involves isos seems pretty tricky from
our code point of view, finding the right ones to loop back mount and
handling all those mounts, etc..  Unfortunately having the end user
either loop back mount themselves or try to extract content is also
wrought with failure, due to end user mistakes.
