Nothing special for now ....
Will be written in more details once we have enough bug reports, and
new features people would like to see in libburn.

The libburn (it's python bindings which will be written as you can see
in the roadmap) are to be used in next generation backup system which
will be used in Ubuntu (Edgy+1) that is builded by a team which I am
My primary motivation behind entering libburn development is that I strongly
feel that this library has a future, and even if that future takes us
to a long period of
development, I really don't care...We'll get there someday...
It could have already been there, but the development stopped as it seems.
