Writes audio CD-Rs in disc-at-once mode

'cdrdao' creates audio or mixed mode CD-Rs in disk-at-once (DAO) mode driven by a description file. In DAO mode, users can create non standard track pre-gaps with lengths other than 2 seconds and contain nonzero audio data. This lets users divide live recordings into tracks where 2 second gaps would be irritating and create hidden tracks or track intros as found on commercial CDs.
