Thanks for both packages. They should arrive at about the same time as
vlc on mipsel, so that we can hopefully finish this transition soon.

Good. I might still break this package because libcdio is blocking
lots of binNMUs, and we need to try to keep transitions as small as
possible, but of course as soon as this package is fixed it's welcome
to get in sync (and if you need help for that from the release team
please don't hesitate to contact us).
