    Not much help but the man for it can be read by:

    Code:
    man gnome-disk-image-mounter
    I am thinking it is for other packages to use for mounting the iso.

    Finally got around to writing a small Disk Image Mounter application for GNOME so something sensible happens when you click an ISO file ... it's pretty cute, you can also select a bunch of ISO files and it mounts all of them. And when you click the eject icon in Nautilus, the disk image is unmounted and the loop device goes away.
    SOURCE: http://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-di...ecaa84271e6fe7
    Add "Disk Image Mounter" utility and associate with application/x-cd-image

    The MINE association makes the utility show up in Nautilus for .iso
    files... basically, if you open an ISO file (or even a selection of
    multiple ISO files) with this tool through Nautilus the right thing
    happens... that is, for each ISO file, a loop device is created and
    its filesystem is mounted. This results in a set of GVolume/GMount
    objects in Nautilus' sidebar and the shell will run its sniffing
    machinery and ask if you want to e.g. watch the DVD movie.

    Additionally, the loop.autoclear option is used so the loop device
    goes away when the loop device is unmounted.
