That's the problem -- the only options are burncd(8) and dvd+rw-tools. Of
those, dvd+rw-tools only works on DVD+RW, burncd cannot correctly format my
DVD+RW (only can be done correctly from the SCSI emulation layer with
cdrecord-dvdhack or dvd+rw-tools), and the other two are completely
unacceptable in that they are unavailable in source/crippleware or
unavailable period, it seems, in the case of dvdrtools.
As to the quality being bad, did you submit the DVD-hack patches back to the
author? I don't think any of these things are really show-stoppers, just
that it would be appropriate to make a non-slave-port that doesn't call
itself cdrecord or cdrecord-devel. I guess it depends on whether there are
users that would like to use this program on FreeBSD. Why in the world is
cdrecord-ProDVD binary-only, anyway?
