      Description

      As evaluated in PICARD-123 there are no stable device names for disc drives on Mac OS X.

      Without an inserted disc, no /dev device actually exists, even when a cd drive is installed in the machine.
      When a disc is inserted the actual device name will depend on how many hard disks are installed and how many .dmg files are mounted.

      There are however numbers attached to each CD/DVD drive.
      These can be seen using drutil list and when a disc is insterted, the actual /dev device name can be extracted from drutil status -drive [number].

      So we should:

      1. support device numbers on Mac OS X (as parameter for disc_read()
      2. set the default device just to 1
