    I will gladly test your fork on my various hardware here. I have a
    desktop with Apple CD/RW+DVDROM and generic DVD+/-RW DL drive, and a
    laptop with Apple DVD+/-RW drive. Just send or post patches
    somewhere and I'll take a look. I suggest starting by looking at
    some of the various distro patches, IIRC some of them have already
    make significant cleanups.

    Might I suggest quilt or stgit? Both allow you to maintain an
    unstable and highly variable stack of patches based off a more stable
    branch, from which some patches percolate down into stable occasionally.

    Good luck with this!
