We'll fix that ifdef and will make the source tarballs exclude any
binaries like this in future. As you noted, mplayer isn't actually used
currently as we're still researching the most reliable way to distribute
and play movies.

Yes, it's in the plans. It will be great to get into the main Debian
distribution and we're well aware that that won't be possible until we
release CDraw as GPL.
