Replicated CDs have actual holes in the reflective medium, while CDRs
have the reflectivity of the chemical layer changed by the laser - thus
the reflectivity can change with time and temp and such. Sort of like
the difference between oil painting and watercolor, in a vague way...
or pinholes in aluminum versus sharpie dots on foil? Sorta like that...
