.BI \--obs_pad
Pad the data of last write operation of a DVD-R[W] DAO session or
stdio: pseudo-drive up to the full size of an output chunk.
Pad the data of the last write operation of a DVD-R[W] DAO session, or BD-R
session, or stdio: pseudo-drive session up to the full size of an output chunk.
This padding has to be applied automatically to the other DVD and BD media
types, where it causes e.g. ISO images to have trailing unclaimed blocks.
Whether it is applied automatically to BD-R depends on option
Use this option if there is the suspicion that DAO sessions abort with
your kernel and/or DVD drive, if their size is not a multiple of 16 blocks.
Use this option if there is the suspicion that DVD-R[W] DAO or BD-R sessions
abort with your kernel and/or DVD drive, if their size is not a multiple of

This option may also get enabled at compile time of libburn.
.BI \--bdr_obs_exempt
Exempt BD-R media from automatic unconditional transaction end padding,
provided that this padding is not requested by --obs_pad and that
no stream_recording is requested.
This is a new feature introduced with version 1.5.6. It might become default
in later versions.
