the whole system is designed so that *i* don't have to add kaudiocreator (or 
any other app for that matter); kaffeine/kscd are just there for 

any apps that should be there (i.e. that handle a can particular type of 
media) can be added to the menu most easily; just be installing a mimetype 
handler for the media type (in exactly the same way you would install a mime 
type handler for any other file type).

e.g. you want kaudiocreator to be on the blank cd insertion menu, just make a 
new service in the applications heirarchy. call it something like 

make sure it has the lines "MimeType=media/blankcd", "Name=KDE AudioCreator" 
and "Comment=Burn a new CD with KDE Audio Creator", and low-and-behold, it'll 
be in the menu when you insert an blank cd.

there's a README in the root dir all about it, and examples in the way of 
kaffeine and kscd.

bish bosh,
