Okay, great.  One thing:

+		ln -s /usr/bin/cdrbq /usr/bin/cdrtoaster

This line is not idempotent; it will fail the second time around.  My
first though was to propose:

  ln -sf cdrbq /usr/bin/cdrtoaster

But it will overwrite a cdrtoaster binary!  This is more correct:

  [ -e /usr/bin/cdrtoaster ] || ln -s cdrbq /usr/bin/cdrtoaster

This will only make a symlink if cdrtoaster isn't installed.  But is
there a way to make the symlink if cdrtoaster is installed, and then
gets removed??  This is probably a job for the alternatives system.

Clear skies,
