Hmmm, but ide-scsi is used for a lot more than cd recorders these
days. Alan mentioned 'crazy' SATA devices back in April.

(Not that I'm suggesting that it is particularly sane to deal with an
SATA connected printer by presenting it as a SCSI device, but I just
can't see how ide-scsi could successfully be removed now :-( )
