Hi Rick
Best re-read the thread from the beginning to avoid possible confusion.

Original poster (installer) was Daniel, not Joerg.
Joerg is author of architecture neutral cdrtools sources.

Agreed.  Joerg has an unusual use of the word stable, but
then when he started using that usage of stable, he didnt need to
conform to FreeBSD usage of word stable as:
  He was I think, a mostly Linux based developer of a cross platform
  source that also runs on *BSD.

  Even in FreeBSD, Stable only later came to mean the common English
  meaning of reliable, I remember several times people asserting all
  Stable meant was that the API (libs etc) avoided sudden changes like
  in current, didn't back then mean make world wouldnt break etc.

Joerg & Marius contributed time respectively writing cdrtools & wrappers.
