Re: Bug#62699: cdparanoia should check/create the /dev/sg* devices that it requires.

This might be a good idea so long as you set ownership to root.cdrom and
permissions to ug+rw.  That combination certainly works well for cdparanoia.
I included the w permission in anticipation of my future cdrecord needs. I
haven't used cdrecord, yet, but I assume these are the ownership and
permissions it needs for the /dev/sg* devices as well.
