Really interesting email, but is this really that much of an argument
against automation? If the process is done intelligently rather than
blindly then surely we are fine again. Reading this i'm going to make some
changes to my acidrip program to offer hints based on the bpp value, which
i'll quite likely bastardise your script for if you don't mind. Would you
still react against it if my automation program were to recommend using
a higher bitrate or something?
