Sorry about the formatting thing.

I agree about the unnecessary abundance of burning apps. KDE devs seem to
focus on supporting and improving K3B, thus making it the best Linux burning
app by most people's standards. Unfortunately there's really nothing like
that for GTK/GNOME. Brasero comes closest, I guess. It's the only one still
being maintained, as I said before. Unfortunately it also comes with all of
those GNOME deps...

A fork of Graveman is definitely needed, it seems.
