Not a priority, but if there is a good lightweight solution, it could be good.

The "Any thing HAL free" is actually limted to Brasero, I didn't find another good CD burner without HAL.

It depends of the use, and sometimes the state of your hardware. It's not really easy to set an universal requierement, only experiments can help in this cas.
