Maybe the package description is wrong and it should say:
This package includes a format utility for DVD+RW media, a frontend to
mkisofs for burning DVD+-RW/R and some associated tools.
Of course the docs for dvd+rw-tools say that ONLY dvd+rw needs
formating, and growisofs actually auto detects if it hasn't been done
and does it (in a few seconds). I imagine it probably would auto blank
or overwrite a dvd-rw when asked to (with -Z), just as it does with
dvd+rw. Otherwise perhaps the dvd+rw-format -blank=full would do the
right thing to a dvd-rw.
