Updated the script again adding the createrepo line (thanks Akemi) and
additional sanity checks.  See attached text file.  Now works for "FTP
like tree" (as well as for ISO images) with CentOS-5 final, EXCEPT for
creating a suitable .discinfo file if one does not already exist.  Any
help in modifying the script to create a .discinfo file "on-the-fly"
would be appreciated.
