List of Optical devices.

I would like to get a list of all the optical drives registered. I
see that in <linux/cdrom.h> there is a register_cdrom() function, and an
unregister variant. Nowhere do i see however a way to get a list of
these devices. I understand that they form a linked list, so getting the
first one would be peachy enough, yet again I can't find such
functionality. Currently what I'm doing is parsing the text out of
/proc/sys/dev/cdrom/info, which is cumbersome. However due to the fact
that a file in proc can produce this, i assume there's a way to get that
list. How may I do so? All i need are the device names so that I may
send some ioctls to them.
