Bug#267091: sound-juicer Optical Drive Detection Workaround

Somehow (probably due to optical drive swaps in the past) I
have /dev/cdroms/cdrom1 but not /dev/cdroms/cdrom0.  I think "udev"
created these for me.  An strace sound-juicer indicates it attempts to
open cdrom0 and then produces the failure message.  Apparently it
assumes that if you have a cdrom drive that it must be cdrom0 so I
create a symlink from cdrom0 to cdrom1 and then sound-juicer operates as
I require.

This is obviously an upstream bug but until it is fixed I will be
manually creating this sumbolic link on the rare occations where I wish
to use sound-juicer.
