That would be good.
Debian has 0.71. It seems that the Windows build has it too.

I'm not aware of the specifics of libcdio ChangeLog.

But from my experience with gnutls, I can tell that it is not good to 
rely on version numbers. At some point, I theoritically needed gnutls 
>= 1.0.17 but it turned out that it would work on Debian with gnutls 
1.0.16 because the change was backported. So I went for a feature check 
rather than a version check.
