Hi Peter,
The OP was about dual layer, so there is no need for "shrink".

But otherwise, DVDShrink works pretty well under wine.

Also, there is dvd9to5 script which works well. For the time being it
just shrinks the main movie, dropping the extra features and the
menus, but I can live without them :)

And I think that dvd::rip project has in its TODO list such a functionality.
