CD burning and root

After the previous CD burning discussion, I tried the nautilus CD

On my RH8 system, you need root access to burn a CD. This could be
changed, but is fairly standard.

If I put files in burn:///, then start up nautilus-cd-burner as root, it
doesn't see any files to burn (presumably burn:/// is user specific and
root cannot access my burn:/// folder). Starting it up using PAM doesn't
work either, presumably because PAM starts the application as root.
(Starting it up as myself works, but I can only make ISOs.)

Is there a way to give the application root permissions yet allow it to
access a user's burn:/// folder? Does this need to be implemented in the
code itself? It really needs to be addressed before it becomes a viable
CD burning utility (I know it's still alpha), and could something that
needs addressing at a lower level in GNOME.
