Yes. The script is a way to make it possible for users to easily change
the auto-play command in the ui. If gnome-volume-manager directly sets
the cdda: handler then the apps you use must be able to handle cdda:

I'm not sure where we should ship the script (or perhaps a c-based
version of it) though. In gnome-vfs? If its in gnome-volume-manager then
people with g-v-m not installed will get the bizarre cdda:// error
message, which is pretty bad. If we want the script to have e.g. warning
dialogs then it needs to link to gtk+ though, which isn't very nice for
gnome-vfs. Maybe libgnomeui?
