Good thing.

Well, I eventually tried dist-upgrade and it removed the dvd+rw-tools package 
entirely - so now I can't write dvds anymore. When I try to install that 
package it indicates a broken situation again. Weird. I don't have time to 
fight with packages now so it's just gonna linger for a while. (Besides I'm 
no good at it)
