Depending on what "use" means it's not the user that is stupid, but the
implementation. I know from experience that it is impossible to emulate
windows removable media behaveour which is a PITA. For "normal" people
it's the led that's the indicator of "in use", which is IMHO not that
stupid. Stupid is that the whole chain of tools expects media to be
unmounted and if you don't do it that favor as a not-so-experienced user
will most probably *will* have to pull the plug to get that "*&/%"*/&% CD
out of the drive.
