I use scsidev, in the scsitools package (in unstable -- I'm not sure if
it's in stable).  scsidev allows you to define aliases based on
hardware ID, so you could have, say, /dev/scsi/camera and
/dev/scsi/vorbis.  You can have scsidev run automatically when you plug
something in, using hotplug, but I've had some stability problems with
that -- at least with Firewire devices.
