The mentioned earlier sysctl OID changes whenever CD is in the
drive or not, something changes that ... so adding appreciate
events like "MEDIA INSERTED" and "MEDIA REMOVED" to cd* class
should be enought to handle them and mount/umount the
medium with script like mine with appreciate devd(8) config.
