Thanks for the RFE, and just to make you sure that I am in touch with 
the bug you can see: 

But it is still not that good. And the implementation by Muayyad handles 
removable media much better. As it is 99% complete, it is really 
reasonable to get it 100% and make many users happy.

Anyway, thinking about the problem with DeviceKit system policies, I 
really feel that the current situation is flawed: a process running as 
root is able to mount a device either by calling mount system call or by 
running the mount command, but it is unable to mount a device using 
DeviceKit. Why?! This is an inconsistent policy IMHO. And I feel it 
should be fixed anyway. Any comments?
