Vendor commands would be tricky (it would probably be best to limit
vendor commands to well-established ones, and just disallow the rest
without CAP_SYS_RAWIO or such), but standard commands wouldn't have a
problem, and those don't get added very often.

As standard commands don't get added very often, that's not a huge
problem, but.. see the attached patch.

Well, would something like this patch be acceptable? It just makes
SG_IO require write access to the device (cdrecord and cdrdao both
open it this way already, so users shouldn't have a problem with it).
I probably forgot some stuff, etc. I'm not terribly familiar with the
code in question.
