The fork-team can look at http://www.arklinux.org/projects/dvdrtools, a 
100% free fork of cdrtools.
The SVN is inactive from 6 month, but the autotool-ization is already 
done and it can write on DVDs, and probably is better than starting 
another fork.

One interesting thing on this project is that they want to turn 
important functionality into a shared library for improve the access 
from the various frontends.
