Improvement in the sense that now varirec has more features than in the past.

Yes, to be honest in my experience (Plextor PX-4824A and Plextor PX-716A) I've 
never see any improvement to use varirec in Plextor PX-4824A.
With varirec=0 I got only more C1 errors...
I've never try with Plextor PX-716A, for now...

Perhaps you are right...
Anyway I was just curious to see if was possible to extend cdrecord support 
for new Plextor features as varirec "improvements", in order to make 
experiments on OSes different from Win. 

Best Regards.
