--fifo_start_empty is a throughput enhancer for unsteady data streams
fifo_start_at=<num> is a throughput enhancer for unsteady data streams

CD on-the-fly. It makes better use of the general property of a FIFO
buffer to transport surplus bandwidth into the future. Yep. A time machine.

With a very fat fs=# buffer (128 MB for 12x CD is not unrealistic) this
can cause a big delay until burning finally starts and takes its due time.
--fifo_start_empty makes cdrskin start burning without waiting for the
FIFO to be full resp. the data stream to end. It can make use of the
seconds spend with drive preparation and lead-in, it risks a few drive
buffer underruns at the beginning of burn - but modern drives stand this.
fifo_start_at=<num> makes cdrskin start burning after the given number of bytes
is read rather than waiting for the FIFO to be completely full resp. the data
stream to end. It risks a few drive buffer underruns at the beginning of burn
- but modern drives stand this.
Usage examples:
{{{
cdrskin ... fs=128m fifo_start_at=20m ...
cdrskin ... fifo_start_at=0 ...
}}}
Note: no FIFO can give you better average throughput than the average
throughput of the data source and the throughput of the burner.

Example: Your frontend insists in using "0,0,0" and --devices reported
dev='/dev/hdc' resp. cdrskin dev=ATA -scanbus reported "1,0,0" then this
would be the appropriate translation:
{{{
dev_translation=+0,0,0+/dev/hdc
}}}
The "+" character is a separator to be choosen by you.
Currently i am not aware of the need to choose any other than "+"
unless you get playful with custom translations like
{{{
dev_translation=-"cd+dvd"-1,0,0
