Looks like cdrdao still needs IDE-SCSI, which aparantly cdrecord doees not.
I have scripts using both. I suspect that the cdrdao ones could be converted
to use cdrecord.

That's really a part of the questions. Which would be a better use
of the effort. Trying to convert the scripts, or compiling
a custom kernel. Looks like Ubuntu releases new kernel packages
fairly often.

Once upon a time thee was a stable branch, and a development branch. 
Looks like it's all in the 2.6 tree these days. Do the 3rd level 
numbers (2.6.19 vs 2.6.18) mean that now?
