The recent 2.2 kernels (I suggest .11 or .12) are capable of doing this.
Paranoia's autosense generally only assumes a single drive, but you don't need
to use it; just give it the appropriate generic SCSI device name via -d and all
will be well.

If you use 'open2' or 'open3' in perl, you can read the output of cdparanoia as
it streams back and just look for the end of the rip.
