Thank you, I'm aware of that. Some time ago I wrote to Andres Mejia (who made
libdvdcss-installer) to discuss but got no reply yet.
Our implementations are very different.
I'm member of pkg-multimedia but I hesitated to alter libdvdcss-installer
without Andres' consent.

If I recall correctly, it can't install the package from postinst due to DPKG
lock. Probably that's the main reason.
Also it is manual, got no debconf prompt to warn user about consequences,
can't handle upgrades (and removes) gracefully etc.
