Ok, but this is not "automatic" as as_needed, right?

So, first I should check with
	cdrskin -minfo -v 
	disk status:              empty
and if so I should issue
	cdrskin blank=blank=format_defectmgt_cert_off -v -data ..
	cdrskin -v -data ...

So as to format only when "empty".

Does this work for BD-R too?

I'd like to leave it as automatic as possible, if
if a good default I'll use it as is.
