Cdda2wav adds an alternative grabbing method from Monty's cdparanoia. Activate with -paranoia.
Finally cdda2wav got cddbp title lookups! A new option (-L)

Cdda2wav now recognizes Serial Copy Management System stati (SCMS).
I always welcome user feedback. If you want a feature very much, vote for it by email!
