I do use cdparanoia, if not in combination with vlc ATM. I don't know
about the relative merits of cdda vs. cddax but at least the latter's
back-end is good enough to warrant wanting an interface.

So how did the code end up in the tree?

Amazingly mga cards are still sold and are apparently still in use in
certain fields -- reportedly very good if not best ever 2D accelerators,
and, of course, dual-head support. Consequently dropping support would
not be wise and in fact it'd be worth at least a look provided someone
has the hardware. I might have, but I'll have to dig.

Reportedly works. Removing would make owners of viachrome hardware
unhappy. I do own a C7 board or two and so does jpsaman.

The code isn't very nice, but at least add the missing stuff to vcd.
