Please look at dvdrtools' files, eg. cdrecord.c before claiming that.

Apparently not. The current cdrtools package in topic is relicensed with
"some other license I'm not discussing here" but the initially GPLed
contributions (mkisofs and its additional components) have been kept
under the GPL.

And that is what I am forking right now. If someone is volunteering as
alpha tester or codeveloper, let me know.
