to /install/ TL (at least as long as a complete installation will be
necessary at each TL release).

In such a case, maybe an .iso file would maybe not be necessary and
providing a "mounted" version of it would make students life easier (I
have no idea if copying the monolithic .iso file takes significantly
less time than copying its "mounted" version).
