You copied some old code, you have no icons, or hints.

The library isn't usable in Rhythmbox or sound-juicer, as it conflicts
with their license (GPLv2 vs. GPLv2 + exception).

The Rhythmbox plugin isn't good enough to replace the current ncb based
one, as it lacks integration (it writes a playlist file, and launches
brasero itself).

The Rhythmbox plugin isn't integrated enough to replace the original
one. The Totem will probably be merged after the last round of updates.

I'm still concerned about the reasons why brasero didn't use
libnautilus-burn and extend on top of it, instead of starting their own
