Shame drives can't talk to each other.

While thinking about drives, especially hard drives, DVD's and CD's, I was 
thinking. It's a shame that the drives can't be made to talk to each other 
over the IDE cable. It would be so nice if when I wanted to make a copy of a 
CD or DVD, if Linux could tell the two drives to just pass data between them 
over the IDE cable rather than having to take the data all the way to the 
controller and back. Talk about 'on-the-fly' burning (-;

Cheers,
