It depends.  The Serpentine author lists a few packages that have to
be installed on Fedora Core 5 (I'm using CCRMA) before installing
Serpentine, one of them being the Nautilus python2 CD burner.  Which,
I'll bet, did not re-invent the wheel and is using in the end
the well-known cdrecord utility.

So I'm a bit wary about installing five (plus Serpentine itself: 6)
packages in order to be able to 'easily' drag and drop files to be
burned on CD when I can freeze the process (and basically the exact same
functionality) in a simple script file inside a couple of minutes while
using what's already installed on the system.

I guess you could call me too lazy to bother with the installation of
a total of 6 packages just to be able to drag&drop files to be
burned on CD ! ;-)  And I think I am, too.

So let's make a contest of who is the most lazy ! ;-))
