  i just did a quick test with abcde, ripping a CD to flac both with
and without the "-1" option (diff being ripping to a single FLAC file
versus individual FLAC files). the difference in final, total size is
negligible, both directories around 267M.

  is there any benefit to one strategy or the other? i assume that i
can rip a CD to a single FLAC file and, subsequently, break it into
pieces later when i decide how i want to organize CDs and individual

  all i want for now is to not rip in such a way that i regret it
later when i discover i inadvertantly left out some useful
meta-information from each CD. so for now, i'm looking at just, one CD
at a time:

  $ abcde -1 -o flac

am i overlooking anything? i can start the process of ripping several
hundred CDs, knowing that, over time, i'll figure out more explicitly
how i want to manage that content, and not having to start all over
because i didn't do it properly the first time.
