Nautilus AFAIK doesn't provide a good way to reorder tracks(rb doesn't
either but will soon) and you really have to look for the audio burning
option(its just a check box)...  It also makes no sense in my mind to
use a "file" manager to burn a "music" cd.  It makes much more sense to
me to burn a "music" cd from my "music" manager.

Sounds like a good idea, but i think it eventually leads to too much
overhead in mem.

Computer Science here :) I encourage you to get involved with some
opensource projects. We would love to have you here also.  Even if you
just doing bug hunting and an occasional fix, its welcome help.
