It has been an optional entry for 2 years.  It should not be added to
cdrom.inf unless the INDEX file has also been modified with an
additional column to specify the volume of each package.  For 5.4 and
beyond we'll want to make sure this gets added to the cdrom.inf and
that the multivolume INDEX is used.  We can ensure that this happens
by better integration of your python package split script with
src/release/Makefile, and a release knob that adds this line to
cdrom.inf when a multivolume setup is built.
