This has been discussed several times already. cdrskin is a Linux only program
and for this reason not a competitor to e.g. cdrecord as cdrecord works on any
Cdrskin in addition is based on a library that is based on specific security
"holes" in Linux. Porting it to other platforms will result in insufficient
privilleges for sending SCSI commands and I am not sure whether the lib is
prepared for this. The typical _users_ of such a lib are expected to be GUIs.
These GUIs are non-portable from using the libs because other platforms all
need special privileges to send SCIS commands and X-applications that make use of
such extended privilleges are classified to be a security problem.
