IIRC, Joliet, just like RockRidge, is an extension to ISO9660, I don't
know if those can coexist. And although ISO9660 in itself is able to
deal with filenames longer than 8+3, it is not recommended, because
DOS and relatives cannot deal with that properly. And you are still
limited in directory depth and file name case, which is probably not
acceptable for a Unix CD-ROM.

If you can use both Joliet and RR on the same image, go ahead, it will
make things easier for Windows users, it not, please stick with RR.
