Unieject project is an eject command drop-in replacement for Linux and FreeBSD that ues libcdio to send commands to devices.

It supports all the features of the standard FreeBSD eject and the most important ones of Linux eject.

It also features a library to access functions to lookup devices and mountpoints, unmount and eject devices.

At the time of writing (pre-1 release), this is still not API-stable nor well documented, but this is going to improve in next versions.

The command line tool instead is a mimic of classic eject command for Linux ( http://eject.sourceforge.net/ ), which supports also the features of
FreeBSD's eject command ( http://www.freshports.org/sysutils/eject/ ).

It hasn't a complete syntax compatibility with either Linux's or FreeBSD's ejects as they have conflicts between them, but the main options are the same.

It can fully replace FreeBSD's eject (in both atapi and atapicam mode), and already mime the main options of Linux's eject.

Build system reorganisation to build faster with parallel make.
