    All that is required is a proper device node in /dev; is this really
    so much of a burden? This device node can be created statically
    at install time or via udev or any other method. In fact if you're
    using udev and a device node isn't automatically created for all
    of your cd burners, you can file a bug report and get it fixed. So in
    the end all you ever have to teach a user is to pick the device they
    want from /dev.
