I use a no CD patch so I can keep my CD in good condition for the eventual reinstall. Will the cheat detection methods rule this out?

How about making the 1.5 patch a no CD patch? Other games have done this and it puts controll of what goes into the patch with you.

I think 1.5 has already lost the CD protection. At least the beta that I have around somewhere (obtained legally, not via a leak) didn't bother to check for a CD.

The Linux version only checks for a CD for playing movies (they're all on the same disc), and you can issue a parameter to tell it to not even bother with the CD-ROM drives. Then again, this was probably reasonable because you have to mount drives manually in most, if not all, distributions of Linux (drives where the media can be changed, of course).
