At least with k3b, there is a way to simply not have the wizard change
anything.  I only used cdbakeoven long enough to figure out that it does
not have my killer feature*, so I'll just take your word for it not
having the same thing :-)


*for those who are interested, (all 2 of you), my killer feature is
being able to drag a directory into the 'project', find that it is 900+
megs, and then selectively delete subdirs and individual files until it
fits.  k3b allows this, gcombust and cdbakeoven don't, dunno about
xcdroast.  There, now you know more than you ever wanted to about my cd
burning habits...
