I'd like to believe libcdio is trying to make it easier more portable
in writing CD-ROM applications. So unless there is widespread dissent
on this mailing list (but generally things are a bit quiet if not
down-right apathetic) I'm in favor of adding into libcdio.

In addition to the above libcdio statement/goal, I like to believe the
libcdio project also welcomes, fosters and solicit opinions and
comments.  (Well, actually many of them have been negative, perhaps
because the API is bit bloated; but that's okay too.  And if someone
wants to unbloat it, that too is much welcomed and appreciated!)

In sum, I think unless there are vehement objects (again see comment
above on verbosity/apathy), it will happen pretty much as you want it
to happen.
