If libschilly met the criteria for being a System Library then it probably 
have been packaged for use by other programs.  If you want to make a case for 
including libschilly as a System Library then please provide a list of some 
of the other programs which depend on it.

Also please note that there is nothing stopping you from building your own 
packages of any software you like that isn't in Debian and hosting them on 
your own web server.  It's really not difficult to do.

Bill, you could become the unofficial cdrecord maintainer for Debian if you 
want to do the work and host it on your own server.
