No I haven't...  I'll check it out.

I use this because a) I'm a control freak and I like to think I know 
what I am doing, b) I've had bad luck with automatic detection of 
telecine v. interlace and frame rates, c) it allows me to crop out 
unwanted borders, d) I get DVDs from Europe and Asia, and some of them 
have weird settings.  But mostly a).  :-)

There really isn't anything in there that couldn't be automated; someone 
who is decent with shell scripting could automate most of it - except 
the part where you select the track you want.  I feel pretty comfortable 
with vi and it only takes a few minutes to get the rip going.
