As long as he keeps the "you cannot change this part of the code" blurb,
the most problematic issue remains. The GFDL GR made it very clear that
we won't accept invariant sections, and this is even more true for code.
This is a fundamental disagreement between Joerg Schilling and the
project, and unless he removes that blurb there is no way recent
cdrecord versions can be packaged in main.
