i'm sorry i didn't notice your mail back then. i'm very interested in using
burncd on a pass(4) device and would like to test any patches you may have.

another option would be to have a ata(4)->cam(4)->ata(4) emulation. layer (the
opposite of the current ATA_CAM option). that way all ata binaries would
continue to work.  what /dev/ata* would be used for is to receive ata
commands, convert them to cam commands and then send them to pass. i wrote a
mail with the idea to freebsd-questions@, but also got no response [1].
