How is this a dilemma?  Does CD sound work else?  Is your CD drive
connected to the sound card via a dedicated wire?

First, this is not as simple as you might think it is.  We basically
need a devfs before we can do this.  Second, it already works.  Just
point your different players to /dev/dsp0.1 /dev/dsp0.2 etc.  We even
have separate volume controls for these virtual channels.
