What would allow me to get rid of the custom launcher is a way to
automatically fill the game list, and then clear it when the CD is
removed, and refill it when a new CD is inserted, which is what my
custom launcher does.  Having to "Add Game..." manually doesn't
really cut it on a platform with only removable storage.

Of course, the standard launcher doesn't have cool zoom/fade effects,
but I guess you can't have everything...  :-)
