But that's the point.  I simply have not looked at it, and putting it up as a 
design to look after it irrelevant to someone who doesn't use it.  The point 
was simply that a gui frontend to a cli program can work OK, and k3b is a 
good example.  Of course, maybe you prefer GNOME and don't want KDE on your 
machine.  Well, that's certainly your choice.  But that also doesn't change 
the fact that k3b makes nice use of growisofs and cdrecord, without being 
clunky.

To answer the later responses in the thread, first, it's not a religious 
thing.  It's a simple preference, to which I'm entitled, as are you.  To the 
second, thank you for calling me a kid.  Nice to be called younger than I 
am.  :-). 

After maintaining the PostgreSQL RPMs for five years I've seen religious 
arguments, and this ain't one.  Gotta do better than that.
