Apparently cdparanoia returns bogus values for duration regularly,
giving us the length of the entire CD for the first track, and either
the nothing of the entire length for the other tracks.

I guess the two choices are:
a) tell everyone to use the GStreamer cdio plugin (if both are
installed, the cdio will get used ), or
b) detect when they are using the cdparanoia plugin, and either don't
read durations or use some other method to do it.

Currently it just uses the first one. I guess I could steal the
choose-album dialog from Sound Juicer too. Now that cvs had support for
dates, I guess I can got around to adding support for that to audio cds
as well.
