It would be very interesting to test cdskin as a replacement of
cdrecord for nautilus-cd-burn. I am the developer of Serpentine, a
audio-cd writer software which uses nautilus-cd-burn. So if serpentine
works with cdrskin that means that:
1- cdskin is compatible with nautilus-cd-burner (at least in the audio part)
-2 cdskin can burn audio cds
As a side note, could libburn be released as LGPL?
One problem I'm facing with serpentine is that nautilus-cd-burner is GPL.
Since GPL is incompatible with patent libraries it's incompatible with
gstreamer's mp3 decoding plugin.
If libburn was LGPL I could change serpentine's license to LGPL and
ship it with gstreamer+mp3 whithout licensing problems.
