guestfish on install CDs, live CDs

One consequence of adding inspection of install CDs to libguestfs is that guestfish now automatically detects them when you use the guestfish -i option:

$ guestfish --ro -i en_windows_xp_professional.iso

Welcome to guestfish, the libguestfs filesystem interactive shell for
editing virtual machine filesystems.

Type: 'help' for help on commands
      'man' to read the manual
      'quit' to quit the shell

Operating system: Windows XP Professional
/dev/vda mounted on /

><fs> cat /autorun.inf
[AutoRun]
open=setup.exe
icon=setup.exe,0

[I should note for people not familiar with guestfish that it can of course open any disk image, even unrecognized ones, but this saves having to mount the filesystem by hand, and it prints the extra information about what is on the disk]
