 You probably want to call it something like "Whole Disc" or "Mirror Disc" or 
something like that, as -1 is a bit counterintuitive.

 The existing mtd job threads show how to get the (very limited) disc title 
(it's used now to fill in a best guess for the track names).

 You really want to wrap dvdcss calls with libdvdread, as it lets people 
distribute all the code (except for an optional _run_ time dependency) 
without fear of legal sillyness.
