I recall the author of KAudioCreator (icefox I think) saying a couple
of years ago that he wasn't planning on continuing it for KDE4. He
thought that having CD ripping as part of Amarok and similar makes
more sense. I agree. :)

Amarok is currently in a feature (sort-of) freeze and a string
(mostly) freeze. But it'll only be that way for a month or two more.
We'd appreciate your help.
