I'm not sure this is the right direction.  Maybe we should actually
allow exporting devices with no medium to be able to insert medium
later without re-starting the server?  Especially with -t (persistent).
I dunno.  At least this is the decision which should not be left to
a -trivial tree.

Thank you!
