Cdrom-Changers :: Multi Slots/Mounts Points (Where's the URL)

Within the last two months, I saw a blurb about someone successfully
patching the kernel or writing an auto-sense daemon that does the
following ::

Example: NEC-251 4x4 ide-cdrom.

Load four different data cds into the device, then mount all
four disks under different directories/mount-points.
Change from one directory to another and the drive auto-selects
the disk mounted/assigned to that directory.

I need a psuedo juke-box action with my NEC 4x4 cdrom to multi-scan/search
star catalogs on cd-sets and auto search raw data on multi-observation
ccd-fits frames.
