That is possible, but would annoy the people who
want to use that device in a different plugin,
or who want to exit MythGallery, and go back
to it later.

Hopefully, having Eject in the File Menu is enough
to increase the WAF for you guys who have drives
that somehow always lock the tray?
(until someone works out the problem and patches it)
