I'm sure k3b can do this fairly easily.

There should be a way to do it via mkisofs/cdrecord... probably you burn 
the audio tracks without fixating, then add a data session.

Hmmyes, 'man mkisofs' says:

"If the -C option is used without the -M option, mkisofs will create a 
filesystem image that is intended to be used for a second session on a 
CDextra. This is a multi session CD that holds audio data in the first 
session and a ISO9660 filesystem in the second session."
