I don't think Aldegonde is updated, but the same (updated) code is in
Totem. You didn't want to fix libcdio (at the time) to detect DVD
movies, that's why we came up with our own code (well, Ronald came up
with it).


If you were to change libcdio to detect DVDs, we (or at least I) might
be interested. Otherwise, I don't see the point.
