Future of k3b - deprecation of wodim/genisoimage

Debian will stop shipping cdrkit (wodim/genisoimage) with the next but one 
release named bookworm  [1] ( so we are talking about something like 2-3 
years). Keep in mind, that Debian is the upstream author of cdrkit. They ask 
every user to replace cdrkit with something else like xorriso. 

As upstream will gone away - it will effect every distribution sooner or later.  
k3b is currently using wodim, but k3b is currently in low level bugfixing mode 
and replacing wodim/genisoimage is out of scrope for the current maintainer 

So any help is welcomed!
