Actually, I looked into that issue before you diabolic plans were
revealed. The main problem was that I've never used the cdrom under
the Hurd before (plus I've never used apt-cdrom, anywhere).

It seems that "settrans -fag MOUNTPOINT" instead of "umount
MOUNTPOINT" is enough to unlock the drive (the storeio process can
continue). If that's correct, I can hack that into apt quite easily,
and put up some inofficial debs on my website.
