IMO gtoaster is far behind k3b and xcdroast in capabilities, it's dated
and removing it is a good thing.  However, making k3b the default for a
gnome only install is no good, and neither is doing the other way
around.  I would like to see k3b and xcdroast used respectively for kde
and gnome only setups as default.  Nautilus cd burning is almost as
useless as Windows XP Explorer integrated cd burning... its a nice
feature to point at and say 'ooh looky there'.

When burning a cd it is usually worthwhile to do so with a well featured
and configurable app.  Using nautilus builtin burning should be the
option for the 'I know this is simple and don't mind all defaults
operation' situations.
