That's a good point but I not sure for myself if porting an
existing app would be easier or not.  I'm not an "expert"
programmer by far and this would be my first real project. 
I thought it would be a good learing experience.  I'll take
a look at the xcdroast sources. What language is xcdroast
written in?  PERL is probably what I am most comfortable
with, I have done some basic C coding, (played with GTK
tutorial also).

One other thing, I have already written some Perl4 code I
use at work to interface mkisofs and cdrecord on a SunOS
