The only 2 reasons I've had for keeping the cdrkit package in Debian
1. hfs hybrid support in genisoimage, a topic that Thomas and I have
spoken about in the past. Now that we no longer have powerpc in
Debian stable and I don't have to care about making CD and DVD
releases for it,
2. icedax's support for extracting cd-text from audio CDs. As
(also!) maintainer of abcde, that's a very useful feature. I'm
not aware of anything else that supports it - suggestions
