I keep coming back to this.  Now I want code to be run when a CD is
inserted.  What's the best way to do this?

I was thinking about a forked process again that checks every so often, but
this seems wasteful, since it will be a relatively rare event.  Then, I
re-read the Morphic suggestions, but given that this has nothing to do with
the UI (although the event handler may well launch a UI), that doesn't feel
right either.
