As far as I remember burning CDsc as unprivileged user with SUID-root
cdrecord has worked with Debian's after their 2nd
upload _if_ the correct access method was used.

However one or more of the frontends insist on using dev=ATAPI which
is documented to be broken/experimentl. Last time I checked (which was
many months ago) there were till issues with dev=ATAPI. I don't know
whether dev=ATAPI as non-root now works.
