After a catastrophic disk failure, I needed to re-rip several hundred CDs and DVDs. None of the available solutions worked quite the way I wanted them to work, so I decided to spend a little time making a script to remove as much pain as possible from the process.

The idea here is to have a system which is comprised of three parts - a ripper daemon, an encoder daemon, and a frontend. I'm planning to use avahi to automate discovery of the backend pieces, udisk to automate discovery of optical drives, and perl to glue it all together. I'd like to make the backends modular, but for the time being, I'm going to be hard-coding the encode formats (mp3/mp4) and programs used (lame, handbrake-cli, cdparanoia).
