Err, you mean -L0 ?
L0 option does the following:
- limits filenames to 30 characters
- limits directory names to 30 characters
- replaces all -, = and + by _

The 8-3 option does just limit directory+filenames to 8+3 

The only problem for 'ISO9660' names is that I could never 
find CLEAR specifications on what is authorized and what is 
NOT (like a 256-ascii map table with 'OK' and 'NOT OK')

(and, maybe, ISO9660 is a bad name, should I say 'joliet'
