I don't think there is anything in the CEBAF/LANL/Chicago EPICS CAMAC device
support which uses any of the "Implementation-Dependant" features of the ESONE
standard.  The exception to this is the card-specific lam-grader module I
currently include in the distribution.

It therefore should be possible to load (for example) a CERN Camac library and
run EPICS device support on top of it.

This, of course, is an as yet unproven assertion.
