I can understand your disappointment. If you look at the changes in
2.1.5-5 though, you'll see that most of it relates to the Debian
packaging rather than the upstream code. As this was a QA non-maintainer
upload I felt it was inappropriate to change the package feature-wise.

Fair point. cdtool is currently orphaned in Debian but it could really
do with a caring maintainer who is familiar with it's code. You seem to
fit that description quite well, how about it? :-)
