Yes, that's it. One would configure Listener to launch k3b or cdrecord after a 
special file is placed inside the "virtual folder". However, the following 
seems to be more user-friendly: one rule would create symlinks for every 
file/directory dropped there (eg: /Depot/CDRecord/Environment/), while 
another would listen for another directory (eg: /Depot/CDRecord/Burn/). So, 
when the user drops the folder which contains the symlinks into this second 
one, mkisofs+cdrecord should be launched.
