Re: CD burning in gnome

I disagree. Like the maintainer of gnome-vfs said - Nautilus and
gnome-vfs should not attempt to be a backup or cd-burning application.
It should just handle the basics of CD-R(W) - place files in a mounted
burnable media, then initiate a burn upon unmounting. Anything estoric
like storing the files saved and "updating them with only newer files"
should be handled by a seperate application - in this case a backup
