Well, I intend to do an update-menu thing that calls 'fburn --gui',
which makes for a somewhat friendly interface from a window manager
menu or icon.  Also it doesn't just blast out the image and hope it's
okay; unless you specify otherwise, the script will verify (using cmp)
that the image can be read back and, if not, will reformat the floppy
and try again (exactly once).  I did this after far too many bad
floppies (a combination of flaky drives and the fact that floppy
quality is absolutely horrible these days).

I suggest you submit the script to the fdutils package.

Thanks!  That's the sort of info I was looking for :-)
Be sure to submit the above text also.
Fdutils's maintainer is likely to want to know what advantages this script has. The text above asnwers that very well.
