I think people don't realize that at the moment, to enable ripping in Amarok 
through an interface, you'd still need the audiocd:/ kioslave set up.  And 
once you have that set up, it's easy to drag 'n drop from Konqueror anyways.

Maybe if KAudioCreator is a KPart or something we could integrate it somehow.  
Perhaps when we do an interface refactor.  So maybe this is something to 
think about for Amarok 2.0.
