Already done. The disk name is considered as an id, and there cannot be 2 same

Check the "reports" tool.

Right, this is something missing. But it is not so easy to do: we need some cvs 
interpreter somewhere.

This is called MDI: Multi Document Interface.
A lot of gtktalog code is done with this in mind, but the MDI is to do. It 
should not be
too difficult to do, but it is work, anyway.

We will probably work on this after porting gtktalog to gnome2.

I cc the mailing list so other developers know about it too.
