See  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wodim

    * wodim (an acronym for write optical disk media), which was forked
      from the cdrecord program in cdrtools.
    * icedax (an acronym for incredible digital audio extractor), which
      was forked from the cdda2wav program in cdrtools.
    * genisoimage (short for generate ISO image
      <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_image>), which was forked from
      the mkisofs program in cdrtools.
