This was more of a theoretical "can" since I haven't actually tried. 
What I don't know is whether <sys/cdio.h> is up to the task. When I 
tried to adapt the FreeBSD audio/xmms-cdread package, there were some 
ioctls that had no equivalent in the netbsd <sys/cdio.h>. FreeBSD's 
include file was named differently, too, and from googling I get the 
impression that they fixed their stuff only recently.

I shall get the cables.
