Ah, yes; but I gather you've never had to deal with Joerg Schilling
(cdrecord author) ?  :-)  It's amazing cdrecord is even supported on
linux, as Joerg disagrees with the generic scsi interface there, and
thinks (maybe correctly, I'm no expert) that _his_ generic scsi
interface is much better. I don't know why he hasn't made more effort
to get it into the standard kernel, in that case...
