       ourselves to the	CDDB server. Outputs response code  and	 entries  with
       matching	CDDB entries, if successful, from the CDDB server.

       read [server] [user] [host] [disc-id] [genre]

       Dumps CDDB entry	to stdout. File	will contain an	extra #CATEGORY= line,
       which leaves it a valid CDDB file but which will	be recognized by parse

       configure wget to do so.	user and host will  be	used  for  identifying
       ourselves to the	CDDB server.
