I prefer this too, and I suspect others might wonder why the controls
are on the bottom. Is there a good reason Ross?

It seems like s-j is preferred because its been around longer, and the
author is better known. Is that all?

I thought of that the first time I saw rhythmbox, I actually spent time
trying to figure out how it played CDs. We have Library, Radio, iPod, so
why not CD? One would simply need to find room for a "Add to Library"
button (which I think beats "Extract").

No doubt Ross and others will disagree (and I'd like to hear why), but I
think the functionality should go in RB. (However I suspect this line of
discussion will devolve into why iTunes style interface is bad/good.)
