there is a feature with cdrskin which was intended to help
its integration into cdrkit.
man cdrskin describes this option:
Set a command name to be executed if cdrskin encounters a known
cdrecord option which it does not yet support. If a non-empty
command is given with fallback_program=, and if no essential
options are given which are specific to cdrskin, then cdrskin
will delegate the job to said command.
The natural commands to be given are cdrecord or wodim but one
may well submit the address of an own program.
The fallback program will get all arguments of cdrskin which do
not match the shell patterns --?* or *_*=* . This eventually
suppresses path names of track sources which happen to match
those patterns. The options from the startup files are not
handed to the fallback program.
Fallback program execution is disabled if cdrskin is run setuid
and not option --allow_setuid is given. In general, the drive's
device files and the involved programs should be set up so that
each program runs under its advised conditions. (E.g. cdrskin as
member of group floppy, cdrecord setuid root.)
Two alias names for cdrskin are predefined with default fallback
unicord implies fallback_program=cdrecord
codim implies fallback_program=wodim
This would make available the advantages of cdrskin with DVD
and Blu-ray media, while also offering the special CD capabilities
This feature was implemented in 2007. Since then it has been
fewly challenged. Thorough testing seems wise.
xorriso's mkisofs emulation has no such feature yet.
Have a nice day :)
