Do you mean recreating DVD image from CD images or the other way?
If a method where linux with root priviledges (for loopback mounting
of the images) is required is OK, I could post my scripts and describe how 
to use them.

As an application example, I burn installation DVD image for say CentOS or 
Fedora onto DVD+R (not RW), then add some files (DVD is still bootable and
is good for installation);
Using the files added I can recreate installation CD images set.

Or I burn DVD with CD images and some extra files, which allow me recreate 
DVD image.

So this is somewhat a kind of simplistic and specialized (ISO images only) 
jigdo utility.

Anyone would want that?
