New description:

 See the above URL for details.  Basically if a system has more than one
 CDROM
 drive, only the last one detected will get the /dev/cdrom symlink.  In
 addition
 to this, we don't appear to handle DVD drives similarly.  Do we want to?
 If so,
 I'd rather we build the 'cdrom_id' helper and use that to correctly
 determine
 drive capabilities (see the gentoo rules in the udev tarball for example
 usage).
