Good of you to confirm it, 'cause I've never used them myself :)
What about dpkg-divert? It doesn't seem to require cdrtoaster to play
nicely. And update-alternatives.8 seems to suggest that the
alternatives system is for things like /usr/bin/editor (though it does
also use /usr/bin/vi, so its not inconceivable to use
/usr/bin/cdrtoaster, either, I guess).
