Not just me, I'd say like 99% of cdrecord users.
Not hearing the users and having making software that doesn't help them
is a real threat to free software that people like Jörg personify as
the dictator of these projects (maybe he's paid by Micro$oft or some
other people anti free software but I can't know)

So, what happens on those "broken" drives that support burnfree and you
burnfree on?

Could cdrecord have workarounds for those drives like easy to use
M$Windows CD recording software may have since they don't need the
switch either and have burnfree turned on by default?

Totally agree with you! (But we have made already clear that's not what
we are talking about)
