In the comments to this post (currently members only) about cdrtools and more talks of forks:
Jörg Schilling, I'd like to introduce you to David Dawes. You two should get along quite famously.
The two of them could get together with Branden Robinson and JWZ and write some software together- it would be a blast! :)

I would pay good money to see any of those two try to write software together. Maybe something survivor style, where they have to cooperate to get off of an island. The possibilities are endless!

I don't think "quick" would cut it.

Suffice to say that they're known for holding strong opinions and having "unique" written communication styles. :P

Jörg Schilling writes cdrtools, complains /all the time/ about the linux scsi layer amongst othet things. (Seemingly at war with Alan Cox.)
David Dawes - core developer for XFree86, responsible for the X/Oz License which forced the XOrg slip.
Branden Robinson - Debian X guy. "How about a nice cup of shut the fuck up?".

It's this perfectly metered exponential escalation of rudeness. The first email is just very slightly rude, almost indetectably so but not quite. Each party then replies to the other in turn with 10% more rudeness than had gone before, in perfect balance...

That was a great five minutes of slacking off. The comments are almost better than the email exchange!

If you can find some way to get Mark Crispin and Sam Varshavchik involved....
