It means Sound Juicer is a good Ripper, but it contradicts Ronalds
suggestion that the popularity of Sound Juicer _as a Ripper_ implies it is
a good reason to remove Gnome CD Player.

Please do create alternatives, add CD Playback to more applications to
more applications (Rhythmbox, Totem, whatever), give people less reason to
want to use Gnome CD Player but please please please do not throw out
Gnome CD Player (baby, bathwater, etc).  As Gnome CD gets older and the
alternatives get better you will be able to quietly deprecate Gnome CD and
remove it without any fuss so there is no need to rush the process.
