I think, the screenshots answer to one of your question. ;-) As for own  
writing code, it is using nautilus-cd-burner library. The orignal plan is  
to use libburn from freedesktop.org. You should visit to its website.


I never use cdrecord (but, only nautilus-cd-burner once a while) and never  
use growisofs, so I can't really answer to your question. I only use  
burncd and cdrdao pretty often in CLI.

What I like about Coaster is that it gives more option to control the  
create image like disable Joliet and etc than what nautilus-cd-burner can  
give. I think, Coaster is better than nautilus-cd-burner because I never  
like how nautilus-cd-burner's UI works. Coaster and nautilus-cd-burner  
still suck for me, they don't give me what I need/want.

Okay, this time I am going to bed for real... Nite!
