Question about noexec flag in HAL

Hopefully just a quick question. In the past I've had to compile HAL
with a patch to disable the noexec flag from being used when mounting
CD's. The lines in question are below:
#define MOUNT "/sbin/mount"
-#define MOUNT_OPTIONS "noexec,nosuid"
+#define MOUNT_OPTIONS "nosuid"
#define MOUNT_TYPE_OPT "-t"
This has been rather of a pain, since I don't want to keep making a
custom patch to remove this flag. Is there some other easy way to remove
the noexec flag from being used in CD mounting? I've tried by putting
this in my /usr/local/etc/hal/fdi/policy/preferences.fdi file:
<match key="volume.fstype" string="iso9660">
However, it doesn't seem to make a difference :(
Any other hints? Or am I stuck patching HAL itself?
