Don't have the script itself determine the name during run-time.  Instead,
rely on cdd-install-helper to substitute it in the postinst/postrm via sed,
since cdd-install-helper already has the value (which it determined from
control) in the $cdd variable.

e.g. in the template, say:


and in cdd-install-helper:

sed -e "s/#CDDNAME#/$cdd/" /usr/share/cdd/templates/postinst >debian/"$cdd"-"$pkg".postinst

I don't know what syntax you want to use for substitution vars inside the 
templates.  Debhelper uses #DEBHELPER#, so I have just done the same.
