Ok, I admitted I was wrong so I might as well clarify one more time. It
is true that man cdrecord does not work for the reason I stated. There

It works in Debian and Ubuntu because they have inserted man page stubs
for the symbolic links. Fedora is considering doing likewise. That is
the right way to solve the problem.
