Hot swapping PCIe based ExpressCards with PCIe to ExpressCard Drives, Synchrotech

"We currently have no solution for Mac OS X, although we would be happy to find a solution for PCIe based Mac desktops quickly. Because of the superior quality of Final Cut Pro and Mac OS X, we have had many video professionals wanting to use Sony/Sandisk's SxS ExpressCards with our PCIe to ExpressCard Drive."

I do see this on Synchrotech's site:

"However, with the release of OpenBSD 4.3, our tests showed the PCIe to ExpressCard drive could hot-swap PCIe based ExpressCards without any modifications to the system's BIOS. Our conclusion is it is a combination of both the BIOS and operating system. Synchrotech is working hard to get operating system and BIOS vendors to rectify this problem. Currrently, many systems require booting with a PCIe based ExpressCard in the ExpressCard slot in order to have the card recognized."

OpenBSD 4.3 - this get's me thinking.
Mac OS X - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mac OS X is based on the Mach kernel and is derived from the Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD) and later, certain parts from FreeBSD's and NetBSD's implementation of Unix in Nextstep . . . Since Mac OS X is POSIX compliant, many software packages written for the *BSDs or Linux can be recompiled to run on it. Projects such as Fink, MacPorts and pkgsrc provide pre-compiled or pre-formatted packages. Since version 10.3, Mac OS X has included X11.app, . . .

_________
Since Synchrotech says OpenBSD allows hot swapping and Mac OS is a based on BSD MIGHT there me a Terminal command that will scan the bus to see new hardware? If that's were to be the case then maybe a simple AppleScript running the terminal command would be the cure for the hot swap. Someone might want to poke around in that area.

Guide to Unix/BSD/Mac OS X - Wikibooks, collection of open-content textbooks
This page explains some of the ties between OSX and BSD.
"FreeBSD and OpenBSD are taking the NetBSD code for their Macintosh hardware ports."
