Downloading ISO files directly to CD, DVD or BLURAY

I know this sounds kind of impossible, but it is entirely possible, all you need is a computer with enough RAM to buffer some of the download. To download a ISO file (say, Debian's netinstall) directly to a CD, you must follow these steps:

mkfifo /tmp/debian_netinstall
cdrecord /tmp/debian_netinstall & 
wget http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/5.0.5/i386/iso-cd/debian-505-i386-netinst.iso -O /tmp/debian_netinstall
rm /tmp/debian_netinstall
