HD DVD authoring for PCs?

Any ideas what DVD authoring software for PCs currently supports the approved HD DVD specification? I think I've heard Sonic mentioned; anything else?

I think we're still atleast a year away from HD DVDs, especially at reasonable prices. I have read that you can make a WMV-HD dvd, but that requires a compatible DVD player.

Be patient and let BluRay and HDDVD finish bickering...

Really? I'll look into that. That's cool if it actually does, but I'd still wait.

Sonic is definitely working on a HD capable system. Their site seems to mention HD-DVD:

I'm pretty sure I saw a seperate package for Blu-Ray last year at IBC as well.
Think they have two different programs for the standards.

Other big players (Apple?) will probably follow pretty soon with software as
well. I expect other to lag behind that for at least a year.

I'm not sure if PC burners have been announced that can be used to burn
movie compliant discs (!). All in all I expect this will be an expensive market
to start in with high costs for the burner, high costs for the software and
high costs for the media.
