Hmm, you're right. But I would dare to claim that most users don't know
the manufacturer of their cdrom drive. And often the technical ids (you
probably take them from /proc/ide/*), are pretty cryptical... I don't
know if it's possible to find out wether a device is a CD/CD-R/CD-RW/DVD
Drive other then parsing this technical id, but if it's possible, I'd
like to suggest taking "CD/CD-R/CD-RW/DVD Drive" as an id and maybe the
technical id in parantheses behind. The number of the device can be
ommitted, that's right, it probably doesn't provide any useful
