Hey, even if you do not agree with the author, there is no reason to
insult him - I do not agree with him either, but he _did_ release cdrecord
under the GPL. So you even have a well working reference implementation,
or a starting point if you want to fork.
I really think that it is the authors freedom to stop development of a
project or to change the license if he is not happy with the direction of
the development. Not only should users be free to use and modify software,
but they should also respect the work that somebody donated to them. Even
if the author has a rather big ego that clashes with other big egos.
So let us hope that somebody picks up the existing work and and continues
the development of a great piece of software.
