based on thinkwiki.org/wiki/How_to_hotswap_Ultrabay_devices and mainly
for scratching my own itch in the absence of any known alternative, i
have remixed the code from the above mentioned site and created my own
set of scripts and created a Debian package from it:

You can find the source and Debian package at the above mentioned site.

I hope i have not reinvented the wheel while being ignorant about
already existing and potentially better solutions?

Please evaluate and help to enhance it, if such functionality is of
interest for you. Also, if you don't like the code, please feel free to
rewrite it in a more suitable fashion.

I have only verified that it works on my own T60 and T61 Thinkpads, and
would like to know if it also works with other models. So any feedback
is welcome.
