Looks like sg isn't going to work, then. It would be a massive
undertaking to port brasero to CAM the way it is now since only a file
descriptor is passed to the SCSI code, and CAM would require the whole
path (or a cam device struct). This will mean lots of ifdefs.

What might be better is to conditionalize the SCSI backend (maybe create
a pluggable medium backends), and add either a HAL or a CAM backend to
that. I don't have the time to lay this framework, but if the brasero
people did it, I would add the CAM backend (and HAL is already there).
