As an off-topic aside, I've found an interesting detail for KDE users 
while searching around for audio-ripping apps. Since it's not obvious - 
at least it doesn't seem to me - I decided to share it here.

When you insert an audio CD and open it in Dolphin, there's a short CDDB 
search going on, an you eventually see the track titles in a folder, 
along with some mysterious FLAC, OGG and MP3 folders. Now simply split 
this folder view and drag one of the folders to some other location. 
This starts an automagic ripping process.

You can also directly open the CD in Dolphin using the audiocd:/ 
kioslave protocol. One of those well-hidden easter eggs that make 
working with KDE so enjoyable.

Following Murphy's law, I only discovered this function *after* having 
built Grip successfully :o)
