In the past you've objected to ATAPI-CAM on two grounds, fear that it
won't be done right, and fear that it will add more work to yourself. I
think that there are enough highly intelligent people interested in the
project that the first issue can be put to rest. While I highly respect
what you have done with this port, I think that you are eroding your
defense of the second issue. I fail to see how porting (and presumably
maintaining) a multitude of CD utilities will be less work for you than
allowing someone to put a CAM hook into your acd driver, and then
sitting back as they maintain that work.
If you object to ATAPI-CAM, just come out and and admit it. This isn't
a battle of egos of wills, and nobody is trying to discredit your work.
You are a valuable member of the FreeBSD community, and everybody
appreciates the work that you have put it. ATAPI-CAM is not meant to
replace you, since we still need your expertise in every other part of
the ATA/ATAPI/IDE framework. It is meant to help users who want a
simple way to do cool stuff with their ATAPI devices.
