Hi all,

I noticed that there's now a bug in bugzilla for CD-ROM support (#28).

There's just a couple issues on how it should be exposed in the tools. Otherwise, it's a pretty easy patch.

1) How should a user specify whether a block device should be exposed as a CD-ROM?

2) Is it going to be necessary to expose block devices as other types?

3) If we're going to move to special Xen-specific block devices, should we also have Xen specific CD-ROMs? Something like /dev/xcdN?
