So the problem is that "Shilling is hard to work with" or that the license is bad? Both do not apply.
Personaly, I can download/view/compile/hack the source code of cdrtools, so that's open source to me. I guess some distributions feel that way.
Maybe, instead of forking cdrtools, the distributions that make money should contribute some back to Schilling for his hard work. That'd persuade him to keep up the good work. But then, gcc and valgrind and qemu also deserve large amounts of cash. The cash flow is broken and it goes to the wrong ends, I say.
