Yeah, I didn't mean to use exactly that command, but rather as an approach:
extract as many fields/metadata that can be extracted quckly:
System/Volume/iso9660 tree/size etc.. and do a checksum of all this to
have only one match.

Right, I don't see why those data couldn't be extracted and stored
seperately, and retrived remotely.
