While cdda might be the correct technical term, how many users will
actually recognize what it means? Personally I think "cdaudio" (or, to
throw in another alternative "audiocd") would be recognized by most
users as support for playing audio cd's (as in the things you buy in the
shops and stick into any stereo made in the last 15+ years).
Are users really going to want to fine-tune between just playing or also
being able to rip/write audio cd's?
A quick check with "quse -D cdaudio cdda" (below) shows that the current
use flag descriptions, as far as I read them, don't make any discrepancy
between these definitions anyway - they all basically say "play audio
cd's" to me (with some additionally enabling cddb, which as a side note
already has a global use flag)
Current use flag descriptions:
local:cdaudio:media-plugins/audacious-plugins: Enable cd audio playback
local:cdaudio:media-sound/amarok: Enable cdaudio functionality
local:cdaudio:media-sound/decibel-audio-player: Adds support for CD
audio playback and lookups via CDDB
local:cdaudio:media-sound/mpfc: Enable cd audio playback support
local:cdaudio:media-sound/picard: Enable support for CD Index Lookups.
local:cdda:gnome-base/gvfs: Enables Compact Disc Digital Audio
(standard audio CDs) support
local:cdda:media-sound/aqualung: Enables libcdda cd audio playback support
local:cdda:media-video/vlc: Enables audio CD and VCD playback support.
So ultimately, this isn't even bike shedding in my opinion. There's only
one color to paint with anyway.
