Few more gestures which might be worth documenting in README.Debian, if you
eventually plan to prepare a new upload for squeeze.
If you want to use growisofs with xorriso for yourself, here is a possible
Xorriso respects several names in argv, and changes its personality
accordingly, where 'xorrisofs' means emulating mkisofs options, and
'xorrecord' resp. cdrecord options. Therefore it is possible to introduce
'xorrisofs' symlink pointing to xorriso (if it does not already exists on your
system), and call it that way via 'xorrisofs' so it handles same options like
mkisofs. The only exception is that xorriso does not produce DVD video images
yet, because it does not emulate -udf and -dvd-video optons of mkisofs.
$ ln -s /usr/bin/xorriso "$HOME/xorrisofs"
$ export GENISOIMAGE="$HOME/xorrisofs"
Now, growisofs will call xorrisofs which points to xorriso, which in turn will
behave like mkisofs, options-wise, except for -udf and -dvd-video.
$ growisofs -Z /dev/dvd /some/files
$ growisofs -M /dev/dvd /more/files
P.S. Yes, I know it is xorriso package' job to provide these links in
/usr/bin, so we might eventually upload that before or after squeeze, not
