Still, SJ's interface is incomparably better, even if it is only for
playing CD's. Also, using digital extraction avoids all "Where do I
change the volume?" and "Why isn't there any cable?" issues. If people
really want more advanced features like repeat or random, they can still
extract the tracks. These features are far less useful for CD's than for
music collections, anyway.

Another option is to keep gnome-cd in, but to make sound-juicer the
default application opened by gnome-vokume-manager.
