I've just tried out brasero and is indeed very slick, and most importantly burnt the CD without
a problem.

If we add one libgnome dependent app the cost for the adding others decreases significantly so it will
probably mean we reconsider a good part of our app selection.

But please do not start proposing things right now, the apps we have not heard of are probably not
good enough to be included anyway.

Lionel what do you think of this whole issue?
