The cdrecord people probably changed their numbering scheme, or
something like that.  APT uses an epoch[1] number -- a number in front
of the version number, followed by a colon -- to handle this case.

[1] "epoch" sounds wrong to me, but it's the only word I could think
of.  Anyone know what the real Debian word for it is?

P.S. Debian isn't in the ispell dictionary (British English).  Shouldn't
it be added?
