My first requirement is that the release team does not feel the need to use 
the qualifier "alpha".  I did not say that was my only condition.  Please 
don't put words into my mouth.

I have burned on my laptop many times in the last 2 years, using wodim.  Shall 
I send you logs of it working on a laptop?  I can show you many cases where 
wodim is working.  I can show you many cases when I have used wodim, showing 
that it is usable.  As far as usability is concerned, wodim and cdrecord have 
virtually the same interface so they have roughly the same usability.[1]

What would convince you that wodim is working?  I've offered logs, I'm not 
sure what else I can offer.  Or, have you simply closed your mind to the 
possibility that working CD/DVD/BD burning free software other than cdrtools

for why I consider cdrtools non-free software.

[1] "Usability" is a loaded word.  Etymologically, it should mean "the quality 
of being usable" but it actually means "the degree to which an object or 
device is easy to use with no specific training".
