That sounds about right.  Keep in mind that Myth rips and encodes each
track sequentially.  Some other rippers allow you to rip all the tracks
first, then encode them, which frees up your CD drive a lot quicker. 
One of these days the CD ripper will be integrated into something like
the mtd or the new jobqueue stuff, so you won't have to tie up your
whole frontend for half an hour...
