I agree that pragmatism should not be half-hearted.

It will last a few days until i am done with polishing the statv2
proposal. If you did not do it yourself until then, i plan to strip
down a copy of pbatard-multiextent2 to the version without extent array
At latest at that point i will ask you for some testing effort.

Then it is nearly only about the decision whether ABI is worth to be
kept compatible or whether it may change with each release.
(Pete and i made clear our differing views.)

If the decision is made for ABI change and pragmatic proposal, then
we could still bring in statv2 in the unlikely case that we ever encounter
an ISO which does not fulfill the pragmatic assumptions.
(This would of course become increasingly cumbersome after more changes
 in libiso9660.)

Have a nice day :)
