Just a few things to report. Installed it in VirtualBox. Selecting shutdown from the menu when booting from the CD does not shut down the VM. But, after installation, booting from the hard drive works fine.
Installed guest additions from the host side, as VBox has some weird bug about displaying the plymouth shutdown screen (see below). The plymouth boot screen looks fine. The shutdown screen is correct after guest additions are installed.
I set my host PC's DVD writer as VBox's CD/DVD drive with passthrough enabled. Try as I might, I could not get Graveman to recognize the device, after repeated fiddling with the preferences. This may be different on bare hardware. I installed GnomeBaker, and the device was automatically recognized.
As to GnomeBaker's dependencies, it has only one: gstreamer0.10-flac. Installing Xfburn would also install exo, libburn4, libexo-0.3_0, libgladeui1_9, libisofs6, libxfce4util, libxfcegui4, thunar, thunar-volman, xfce4-panel and xconf. I don't know that one application has any advantage over the other, other than the number of additional packages to be installed.
