    Face it, you think anything anyone says (including Alan, Linus, me,
    and anyone else who happens by) anything about your precious cdrtools
    is making meaningless remarks. Allowing users to fuck hardware using a
    badly written permissions system _is_ a security hole, no matter how
    much you dance around the issue.

    This is why Linus added what he did, so users couldn't; which means
    _fix your damn program and quit your bitching_.
