This sounds sweet and wonderful, but you're assuming that you can maintain
a sustained throughput for ~15 minutes which is 42% of the theoretical
max. throughput (I don't know if there are any Ultra or UW SCSI burners).
I'd be dubious, though I imagine with a fast machine and two SCSI channels
to spread the load, it might be doable. But you're only going to know it'll
fly if you suck it and see, or find someone who has done so already.
