Cheers for the pointers. I'll try out the isoinfo tool, as my
intention was to extract the images on the fly. If it turns out to be
slow though (or problematic - I assume you mean that images in e.g.
joliet format may not be parsed properly), I'll probably end up
extracting the images and caching them on disk on the addition of new
iso's by simply mounting the image as Grant pointed out.

And it looks like wxPython may have support for icons in an img2py
script, so that may sway me toward wxPython over TkInter.
