nautilus-cdburner misses some option, so it can't currently replace xcdroast

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-10-31 12:40:10 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".

Redhat does not deliver an "enhanced" version of cdrecord 
but an artificially _limited_ version of cdrecord that does
not properly write DVD media.

The original software of course supports to write DVDs
and is recognozed by xcdroast.

It is interesting to see this bug "closed cantfix" as it would 
be very easy to fix. Redhat would just need to come back and
publish again the legal original software....

Or does Redhat still likes to continue to publish a broken fork 
that cannot be legally distributed?
