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.
