    Actually, dev=0,0,0 or dev=/dev/hdc are neither particularly portable;
    each can be something else on another machine. At least /dev/sr0 (or
    scd0 if you go to that church) are a bit less likely to change.

    Joerg made the point at one time that the 0,0,0 notation will allow
    use of devices with no inode. That's not been useful to me, but it's
    probably true ;-)

    If I were going to do that at all, I would have used controller, bus,
    device, LUN notation, (0,0,0,0) and been done with it. Joerg marches to
    the beat of another drummer, however, maybe even a whole other brass
    band. He wrote it, he invites people to not use it if they don't like
    it, which I've heard in other contexts. ;-)
