True, but wodim is still based on cdrtools an old version of it, they can still look at the code and take parts of it, it is open source. BTW, there was a way to get a key from Jorg. I think that people needed to request it. The DVD parts were not opensource and thus had to be kept that way.
<quote from ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/cdrecord/ProDVD/README>
This directory includes binary versions of cdrecord-ProDVD
for various platforms
NOTE: the DVD-recording drivers have been added to the OpenSource
part on May 15th 2006 with cdrtools-2.01.01a09.
There is no longer a need for a key.
Good thing to know that wodim also burns DVD's. growisofs would also do this if needed. And users also have cdrdao to use when wodim fails. It is great to have all these tools at our disposal.
I have both like I have said, and would use the other when one fails
