While preparing a fix for the /media issue in discover1 I thought about
removing this feature from discover1. IMO there are 2 good reasons to do this:

1) discover (Version 2) does not have this feature, so it will go away in
the long run.
2) I doubt that it is really usefull because it does not add entries to the
fstab and if you have an external cdrom the device names can change if you
plug/unplug this device.

However I don't know if there are some parts of the system that rely on
discover1 setting up these links. What do others think about it?
