Most times when I want to burn an audio cd, I am not doing any other
thing at all. Most times it is either a friend asking if I can burn
something for them or for myself and even then I don't think about
that when playing the tracks, because I already have them. I think of
it when I need them on cd, in which situation I don't have rhythmbox
opened. In the current situation I will have to think can I do that in
nautilus or with serpentine? If you don't know there is a big chance
that you will burn a disc with nautilus containing some mp3 or ogg
files the first time which will be quite useless. If you had
gnomebaker, it would be immediately clear in the main dialog if you
are burning an audio or a data disc. As long as people think in terms
like 'burning a cd' it is useful I think to have an app that burns
cd's, no matter what is on them.
