please feel free to close this PR. This feature request has been super-
seded by the existence of http://www.mirbsd.org/man1/getextent_cd9660 =E2=
source at http://cvs.mirbsd.de/src/usr.sbin/getextent_cd9660/
Now if you people would please focus on toolchain/33925 which is really
critical for Live CDs (when using =E2=80=9C-t cd9660=E2=80=9D stops at the =
makefs/cd9660.c:cd9660_sorted_child_insert(), probably due to too deep
directory nesting, even using =E2=80=9C-o allow-deep-trees=E2=80=9D did not=
help, so I
have to use 4.2FFS for it) where the image size, unlike floppies, has
not been decided upon prior to image creation.
Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh=
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.=09-- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
