Public bug reported:

Currently, there is no way to tell from the GUI whether the data on a CD
or DVD was burned correctly, and therefore external tools have to be
used to perform the verification.

Many users do not know the existance or simply do not have the skills to
execute this external tools.

Verification of the written data is a very basic functionality which
IMHO oppinion every burning application should implement.

This leads to a very odd situation I've observed: many GNOME users have
a "clean" GNOME desktop with no other kde applications than k3b,
although GnomeBaker is great, stable and the default GNOME CD-burning
application. The point is, many of these users use k3b for the *sole*
reason that k3b *can* do data verification after burning and GnomeBaker

Note that I'm not claiming this to be based on statistical information.
This is just a subjective observation.

Many thanks.
