Transfer-wise, will discdoc be as good, most of the time, as using the
Keith Monks cleaning system (or comparable system)?
Time-wise, which one works faster (once setup)?
Both of these factors are important. The time of cleaning is
especially important for raw transfer of a large number of records
when done "in the field". And the quality of cleaning is important so
long as it makes a perceptible difference in the quality of transfer,
given everything else constant.
