That's interesting, Adam.

I've been using cdparanoia for several years as the basis of a script which will rip multiple discs as a set (I mainly buy operas on CD nowadays), convert the result to FLAC, add track and disc number metadata, calculate Replaygain, and finally open the files in foobar2000 for further tagging.

Whipper seems nice, but I'm not sure it adds enough to make it worth it. I'll check it out, though.
