    So I'm still wondering what the "approved and recommended" way for a program
    to be "automatically" informed of a CD or floppy change/insertion and be able to
    informed of media 'type' w/o kernel warnings/error messages. It sounds like
    there is no kernel support for this so far?

    Then it seems the less ideal question is what is the "approved and recommended
    way for a program to "poll" such devices to check for 'changes' and 'media type'
    without the kernel generating spurious WARNINGS/ERRORS?
