Sure -- If someone says "do it", I'll submit a patch to remove the
special-casing for zisofs :-) It already makes me uncomfortable that I
test the squashfs case but not zisofs.
It could be helpful if people test squashfs vs zisofs and see if there's
any time when squashfs doesn't generate faster/smaller/"better" CD
images; then it would be a no-brainer to remove the less performant
The one thing that's "better" about zisofs is that it's transparent and
you don't have to do any shenanigans with a loopback mount.
