Yes, but maybe you burn a CD once a month. I think clicking a menu->Burn
CD is still easy enough, of course it's one click more but hey.. :)
I really don't think we should have something really uncommon like this
in the main ui.

I see rb as a music player and burning cds as a bonus..

Hmm.. I think that would be pretty confusing..

Maybe. Although I think it's fine now.. like.. the volume slider will
clearly pop down out of the volume button, vertically, making its
relation instantly clear imho. And the time slider has a time label
under it so.. well.. I dunno, I'm biased ofcourse ;)
