create multi-session CD on OSX - Mac Applications & Software

What's the big deal about creating multi-session CDs under OSX? Apparently, you must buy something like Roxio Toast (are there others?) if you want to be able to write to a CD in more than one session. Is it so difficult that Apple couldn't do it? Is Apple saying it isn't recommended/reliable/practical? Does the restriction exist with DVDs as well? Comments?...

    well?

    Comments?

    The Disk Copy utility will perform multiple session burns, it just
    doesn't build the image automatically the way the Finder does.

    What's the big deal about reading the frigging manual? In particular,
    knowledge base article 107240 says you *don't* need something like Roxio
    Toast; you can burn multi-session CDs with Apple's own Disk Copy. m.
