* better: make cdrecord a link to a bash script:

this is a real help.

This is not only no help but misslieading.

cdrecord was not dropped ans wodim is no replacement for cdrecord.

wodim is just a buggy variant from a very outdated version of cdrecord.
Please document that people should use the original software and make sure that
there is no package that overwrites programs from the cdrtools by broken
software from the cdrkit bundle.

This is the list of programs from the original software:

/usr/bin/mkhybrid -> mkisofs

I am not sure for Suse but with other linux distributions, most of them get
overwritten by defective software if you later install wodim/cdrkit.
