That's good thinking, and would indeed be great help.

 From where I stand, the idea that someone using an ISO will only ever 
use it in optical media mode (either real or emulated) is a thing of the 

These days, you can be almost certain that someone will attempt to use a 
bootable ISO to create a bootable USB. So if the bootable system 
installed on the ISO took that into consideration from the get go, that 
would help a lot.

Also, if the best answer I get is that I'll just have to be creative 
with trying to compensate for the version lockdown, could I at least get 
an answer to my question of how one can determine the exact version of a 
.c32 file?
