I believe yes, it is still needed.  What's not needed any more (with
kernel 2.6) is the old scsi stuff (forgot what it was called) that was
needed to do CD burning (but not CD-ROM reading, IIRC) under kernel 2.4. 
Under 2.4, ide-cd did CD reading, but not writing.  It handles writing
too, under 2.6, so the extra stuff that was formerly needed for writing
isn't needed any longer.

Here, I compiled it, along with everything else I use routinely, directly
into the kernel.  The only module stuff I have is stuff like printer and
scanner drivers, and ext2 and msdos filesystems (I've standardized on
reiserfs) that I seldom use, so don't want in locked memory, which is what
the kernel is.  I'd have USB compiled in too, but there was (is?) a
bug where all it detects is the hub, if it's compiled in, and I was
running into that, so I /have/ to compile it as a module and load it
dynamically.
