So, lets see, how it is currently:

I have

/dev/hda -> IDE
/dev/sda -> SCSI ID0
/dev/sdb -> SCSI ID3
/dev/sdc -> SCSI ID4
/dev/sdd -> SCSI ID5

Now I remove SCSI ID3. 'drive does not spin underwater error'

/dev/sda -> SCSI ID0
/dev/sdb -> SCSI ID4
/dev/sdc -> SCSI ID5


Not too different from the scheme you criticized above. But it is
already in there. And IMHO it sucks. :-(
