hotplugd(8) watchs for devices attachment or detachment, but a CD
insertion is a new medium in a existing device, so no event is

For this specific problem, sysutils/toad (marked broken) was using a
polling daemon: a program that regulary try to readlabelfs(3) from cdXc,
and run itself the attach script.

See https://github.com/ajacoutot/toad/blob/master/toadd.c for source
code of the polling daemon.
