Make it easier to burn an audio / video disk

Bug Description

Binary package hint: brasero

Before ubuntu ditched serpentine in favour of brasero, it was dead easy to make an audio cd. When you inserted a blank cd you got a dialogue asking you whether you wanted to create a data or audio cd. Now you only get the option to open the folder, open the cd creator (incidentally, both options do the same), "use another application" or do nothing. An easy option to make an audio cd isn't even there, and I consider that a regression.

Please, add two options to this menu: "create audio disk", which would launch "brasero -a" and "create video disk", which would launch "brasero -o". This would simplify things a whole lot for newcomers.

In Lucid burning a CD is still not easy. Is there someone working on this ?

I see two (big) disadvantage of "CD/DVD creator" compared to Brasero data project : it does not show the remaining free space when adding files. And it is impossible to burn a CD image.
Movie / music features are less important IMHO.

So I see 2 ways of proceeding:

1) when inserting a blank CD, the menu entry proposes :
- Do nothing
- Open the folder (which is same as Open CD/DVD creator)
- Open Brasero (main menu, as in attached screenshot)
- Open with another application

2) when inserting a blank CD, the menu entry proposes :
- Do nothing
- Open the folder (which is same as Open CD/DVD creator)
- Burn data (Open Brasero data project)
- Burn music (Open Brasero music project)
- Burn video (Open Brasero video project)
- Burn an image (Open Brasero image project)
- Copy a disk (Open Brasero disk copy project)
- Open with another application

Sorry, I created another bug report, as this one only concerns audio/video.
