Re: CD burning in gnome

I always make copies to a staging area when burning cd's. You can make it
a requirement for doing the process. Setting aside ~700mb is not that bad
for people wanting to burn cd's. If they can afford a cd burner then they
can afford a gig of space to burn with? If there isnt enough space for the
staging area, then it should just give an out of space message.

Also, rather then putting it in a home dir, it probably should be a system
wide thing. If you have a system wide device like a burner, then there
should be a shared burn staging directory for that device. That way, you
dont waste lots of space amung multiple users.
