I'd very much second this solution!  It would finally allow me to
complete the 9660 support.

One thing that is missing from our current 9660 implementation is the
support for multiple extents of a file.  9660 allows for a file to have
multiple extents, where one extent, while starting on a block boundary,
can have an arbitrary length.  One thing that could reasonably make use
of this would be the extension of files on multisession CDs.

Granted, I haven't seen any CD making use of this feature, but...
