A single sub menu to select predefined ripping configurations and manage
configurations is all it takes. It would keep the file manager GUI
uncluttered and still allow easy access to a multitude of configuration
This kind of UI is perfect for people like me, that create a small set of
predefined configurations (e.g. archive flac, high quality ogg, mobile
player mp3) and rarely, if ever, mess with the configuration again.
Of course, a ripping program independent from the file manager should also
exist, even if it gives the exact same features.
