[CentOS] Archive-to-DVD

Hi folks,

Here's the situation.  I have a group of engineers who love to save
things to disk.  Now that the filer is getting full, they are
interested in archiving some of those things to DVD.

The tress containing the things they want to archive are specified
like so: 


...and there are things in A and B which do not match the specifications.

The total amount of data in this specificaiton is around 30GB, and this is not
distributed equally through the specification.

What I'm hoping for is a program that I can feed in directory
specifications like the above, and it will produce for me DVD images
(.iso files) containing these trees in such a format that when the
engineers want file $X, I can give them the DVD (or the whole stack,
if required) and say "there you go" without having to go through a
restore process.

I don't want something which creates it's own archive format which
spans the DVDs (ie split-tar or ufsdump).

I would settle for a program that produces a list of files such that I
can create DVD images on my own.

Does anyone have any ideas how I might go about doing this, before I
roll my own solution?
