automounting cdrom drives (Udev question)

I was doing some research into automounting, and I am trying to find
the glue that can automatically mount a cdrom drive when inserted, and
unmount/eject it when the eject button is pressed.
udevadm monitor does not show anything interesting when I hit the
eject button, nor when a cd is inserted, so I have a hunch that it'll
take more then udev.
I heard that hal could do that (which has been depreciated, and
replaced with devkit-disks), but I was not finding much information on
how devkit works. It 'feels' like a reporting program, requiring
another program to mount the disks.
Note: So far, just researching. I was hoping to avoid PAM, which is
one of the dependencies down the chain.
