I'm not sure wodim even existed in those days. Certainly the DVD stuff 
has been in the open source release for a long time, since Joerg lacks 
the people skills to even let people give him money. I suggested he just 
get a Paypal account and ask for donations, he wanted payment by 
International Money Order payable in Euros.

Anyway, history lesson over, there are many things I don't like about 
cdrtools, but I like the results.
