  yes, that's guaranteed to work since you can always feed
jigdo[-lite] a higher level directory location as long as the rpms are
under there *somewhere*.  the only drawback to that is if you have
several devices mounted under /media, then specifying simply "/media"
will cause a scan of *all* of that.  being more specific will always
save you a bit of time.

  this issue inspired a bugzilla report once upon a time, which
suggests that it's still an issue:

  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=426847

unless someone knows differently.  i guess i could have tested that
earlier.
