   Uh? I suggest you have a more precise look at the Drip source code
and see how exactly it uses libdvdcss. My understanding is that it does
not at all: it only uses libdvdread. The Drip author seems to be
largely confusing what is installed at build time and what is present
at runtime; the warning about libdvdcss not being present is triggered
when libdvdcss is not present on the _build_ system.

   So I think you should just remove your README.Debian note, and let
the user see the libdvdread debconf note about its optional use of
libdvdcss. That ought to be enough.
