The licensing doubt might not be a show-stopper for Arch, but clearing
it would still increase the chances of a dev/tu packaging it.
And I was not just thinking about Arch, I was thinking about every
potential packagers/distributors of cdrtools, this would be useful for
all of them.
So if anyone wants to become the first useful person in that
discussion, (s)he knows what to do.

And as a sidenote, one TU showed interest the first time :
I suppose he got scared away by the endless discussion.
