TPMDIR=$(mktemp -d);
cd "$TMPDIR";
wget -O- 'ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/cdrecord/alpha/cdrtools-beta.tar.gz'|tar -zxf -;
find . -type f |xargs grep Copyright|grep -iv Schilling

are the parts of cdrtools which are clearly not copyrighted by Joerg
Schilling. [Most of them don't matter for our discussion, but that's
why it's erroneous to claim that he's the copyright holder for all
parts of cdrtools, and why I don't make a distinction.]

The problem is fairly clear; the combination of GPLed and CDDLed code
is not distributable. Whether Joerg will agree with that statement of
the problem is unlikely, but that's not really our problem anymore.
