Interesting, but I'd rather avoid CDDB if possible. Actually, I wonder  
how that works. I thought you needed to buy a licence to talk to CBBD  
these days. Maybe I'll download it and take a look anyway.

I'm currently looking at MusicBrainz::Client::Simple. It has a  
"lookup_cd" method which is described thus:


   Queries the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive to calculate a CDIndexID. The ID  
is then sent
   to the musicbrainz server. lookup_cd returns a list of
   MusicBrainz::Client::Simple::Album objects which contain various information
   about album, artist and tracks of your CD.

Which sounds like just what I wanted.
