    Hmm. If such a generic low-level raw device layer were to be
    implemented (presumably as the foundation for the block layer), I
    expect the interface would be somthing like the cdrom layer, and
    would abstract out all the normal things that raw mass-storage
    devices can do.

    But the minute such a layer is in place, people will begin going
    straight to the sub-low-level raw device layers so they can use
    all the exciting new extended features of their XP370000 quantum
    storage array which needs the special frob-electrons command to
    make it work...
