I'm not sure if the changer driver currently works, or not.  I know we 
don't have the userland goo to manipulate the changer...

However, a friend of mine here at work told me he'd been having trouble 
with a new DAT changer he bought ... he can't get it to work under 
FreeBSD, and asked if I'd help him...I told him "sure, if you let me make 
it work under NetBSD, too" ... So, I'm supposed to be getting one of 
these beasts in the next day or so, and will probably plug it into my 
sparc at home and hack on it this weekend.
