That's only going to be of any good if discX *always* appears as discX,
no matter where it's connected, and no matter what else is also
connected.

The techniques of working with discs connected in different ways is
going to be different.  So something other than the name, now, will have
to be used to determine what way to handle the device.

I do wish things were done more like how it was on the Amiga:  Device
names were written into the device, as were volume names, and the file
system (if you wanted it to be).  Plugging the drive into anything meant
it was labelled and identified the same on any computer.
