I, the lame lib maintainer, tried to compile coriander and one of his own
applications, for the juju stack, git cloning libraw and svn co'ing
libdc1394 and cvs co'ing coriander. I had to modify coriander slightly
and my own application some more, because the API of libdc1394 is still
changing. After it all compiled, I tried it on a computer with multiple
IIDC camera's attached. The applications see all devices. However, you
can only read out one device at a time, because ISO channel allocation
is not implemented according to libdc1394. Second, the camera image is
messed up, the first 10% is fine but the rest is junk.

I'm not the upstream maintainer, I'm the Debian maintainer. I do not
mind fixing little things myself, but fixing this is beyond my scope.
Upstream is clearly not ready, I cannot package unreleased stuff from
git/svn/cvs that is not working properly anyway.

Again, for those Debian users who want a *working* FireWire stack,
please enable the old modules again. You can build both the old and the
new stack. You can blacklist the old modules by default so that only the
modules for the new stack get loaded unless the user wants the old one
