One thing that I don't think I've read but personally encountered.  
When using cdcontrol, it seems to tell the cd-rom drive to play the 
disc so it's not really done in software.  If the audio cable from the 
cd-rom drive is not connected to the motherboard you won't get sound.  
For the vast majority of users this is a non-issue, but it be confusing 
to figure out.
