Not I.

ncr0 targ 4 lun 0: <TOSHIBA, CD-ROM XM-3401TA, 3593> SCSI2 5/cdrom removable
cd0 at scsibus0cd0(ncr0:4:0): 250ns (4 Mb/sec) offset 8.
: cd present, 243950 x 2048 byte records

(The CD that's in there is a music one. And after rebuilding 'workman' from
sources rather than using the package, the eject worked flawlessly).

It'd be cool if someone made the new version of workman 'work' under
NetBSD such that we could read the audio data off of CD's.  I glanced
at it and it seemed like we'd have to add some stuff into sys/scsi/cd.c,
and cdio.h... 

Anyway, it wasn't going to be me...
