And it gets even more complex if you want to support multisession cd-s
nicely. CD(-RW)/DVD(+/-)(R/RW) is really way too specialised api and
operations to be included in gnome-vfs, just like you wouldn't put code
for filesystem-like control of weather stations or microwaves ovens or
x-10 controllers or printers in gnomw-vfs.
