Sorry about the delay.  I have been terribly busy at my work
recently. Anyway, I just started on this yesterday.  I converted
things to using debhelper instead of deb-make, which seems to be a
popular thing to do these days to keep policy stuff current.

I ran into a little problem though that perhaps you can help me
with.  In the Makefile, you must specify an interface to use, and the
choices are INTERFACE=\"generic_scsi\" or INTERFACE=\"cooked_ioctl\".  
These are, it seems, mutually exclusive.  You had it set to use
"generic_scsi". As the kernel ide-cd maintainer, I am somewhat biased
towards "cooked_ioctl", which works with ATAPI drives, but that would
mean that the SCSI folks are out of luck, and what worked before will
no longer work.  But if I make a "cooked_ioctl" version, the ide
folks are out of luck, which is also unacceptable...  Any good
ideas?  Should I make _two_ cdda2wav packages?  You thoughts would be
