    The "somebody" strongly felt that ide-scsi was not just ugly but _evil_,
    and that the syntax and usage of "cdrecord" was absolutely stupid.

    That somebody was me.

    ide-scsi has always been broken. You should not use it, and indeed there
    was never any good reason for it existing AT ALL. But because of a broken
    interface to cdrecord, cdrecord historically only wanted to touch SCSI
    devices. Ergo, a silly emulation layer that wasn't really worth it.

    The fact that nobody has bothered to fix ide-scsi seems to be a result of
    nobody _wanting_ to really fix it.

    So don't use it. Or if you do use it, send the fixes over.
