I did some quick think about SUID bits to /usr/bin/cdrecord (wodim) and /usr/bin/cdrdao . I'm using k3b for burning and it always write warnings like cdrecord will be run with root privileges. What do you think about it? Could it cause some security issues or something bad?

It's completely unneccessary on typical modern computer systems. Ignore the
warnings they really only apply on ancient slow systems. (486 etc)

Imagine that someone starts kernel compilation "make -j 100" and someone else starts "cp -r / /back" :) . Not so typical situation but cd burning with suid could end fine more probably :)
