Speed up iTunes CD importing

Do not forget that the amount of data read from optical media increases from inner tracks to the outer edge of the disc.
As you import an album, each song will have a greater and greater import rate, until you hit the CPU bottleneck (probably only possible on an older machine).

You're kidding, right?

CDs spin at a fixed speed, so as they get to the outer edges, the drives can read more data.
