Create an Audio CD Library on Linux

Give your computer something to do while you sleep...
My idea was to write a script that would operate on a text file containing a list of directory one wanted CDs burned from. When the script executed, the first directory on the list would be used, and a CD would be burned. This directory would then be removed from the list. A user could run the script from the command line, and a CD would be produced without the use of a graphical user interface. As an additional bonus, this script could be run by cron in the middle of the night. Then, the user would need only leave a blank CD in the drawer at the end of the day, and come back to a newly created CD the next morning. One wouldn't get a huge number of CDs created at one time, but, over weeks and months, one naturally would obtain a sizable collection. In addition, running this script at night meant all the cycle-time is done when the computer is idle, so there is no disruption of one's daily routine.
