Replying to myself here. I'm not sure what's going on but I forced the
size of each file to round up to the nearest 2K block but I got a
strange result. I have it spit out the cumulative file size of each
disc and for disc one I got 4679MB, which would be fine in MiB but not
MB, but the resulting ISO file was 4476MB.

Here's part of the code: (line numbers added)
1     if not os.path.islink(file):
2        file_size = os.path.getsize(file)
3        iso_size = math.ceil(file_size/(2*1024))*2*1024
4        disc_size += iso_size

You don't have to know python to interpret it so please let me know if
you see anything wrong with the logic.
1. Test to make sure it's a real file and not a link to a file.
2. Get the file size in bytes.
3. Round up the file size to the nearest 2K block.
4. Add the iso_size of the file to the disc_size variable
... wash, rinse, repeat...

Any ideas?
