cdparanoia is slow
Here are some average statistics of ripping between 50-100 cds.
In sound-juicer ripping in Warty, the average speed was between 3x-4x.
Currently, in Hoary, the average speed is between 1.2x-1.7x.
That seems unreasonably slow. The same hardware running Windows and Media
Player can rip at around 7x. My much-slower Mac Mini rips at 12x-16x.
Enabling and disabling DMA doesn't seem to make a difference (unless you have to
reboot after you switch the setting).
If possible, the rip+encode speeds should be close to what the user experiences
on Windows and Macintosh so it doesn't seem burdensome.
