Is this topic considered a political discussion?
For anyone interested, Jörg Schilling was surrounded by controversy when he relicensed part of cdrtools as CDDL, a license not compatible with GPL.
Whats the problem with wodim? Wodim is GPL, it burns my CDs, and it doesn't need to be repackaged by the backtrack team.The claimed incompatibility was also source of a controversy behind a partial relicensing of cdrtools to the CDDL (which had been previously all GPL), which was declared legally "undistributable" by the Debian project because the build system was licensed under the CDDL, while the GPL requires that all scripts required to build the work also be licensed under the GPL, thus causing an incompatibility that violates the license.
Your arguments are "why we should include cd burning software", not "why we should include these tools instead of the existing ones", which is where I believe your argument is going to fall flat.
