If the Linux developers would take similar problems more seriously,

cdrdao is able to blank media on some platforms while cdrecord fails
with "illegal field in CDB" by sending exactly the same SCSI command.

It may well be the same command, but not the same data in the page.

The fact that the Linux hackers claim that this is a cdrecord bug, just
disqualifies their skills.

If you believe that the exact command, with the exact same data, on the exact same alignment, run as the same real and effective user, on a device in the same mode, works for cdrdao and not cdrecord because of a kernel bug with identifies your software and treats it specially... I think that "disqualifies" your grip on reality. You are doing something different, and that's a technical problem, not an evil conspiracy.
