The attached patch works to just enable the c argument to -alter_date in
1.3.2-1.1.  with that patch, i can reliably create reproducible ISOs by
sorting the extents and fixing the timestamps.

It looks like the libisoburn debian packaging isn't rebuilding the
documentation from the .texi sources, so the manpage and info pages
aren't getting updated with the new flags to -alter_date, though.

I'd be happy to NMU this targeted patch as an interim step toward
reproducibility unless the pkg-libburnia maintainers plan to upload the
new upstream release sometime soon.

George, maybe you can comment on those plans?
