OK, I'm testing (the previous release, as I already had it built).

I installed it and fuse-libs came in to satisfy the dependency, and went to
mount an NTFS-formatted USB stick I got from a friend.  (Bit of a pain to make
it, too.)  

> s mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt
fuse: failed to exec fusermount: No such file or directory
Failed to mount NTFSUnmounting /dev/sda1 (Test)

So it looks like there needs to be a dependency on fuse in there.  After
installing fuse, things seem to work great; I can read existing data, rename
files, create new files and delete stuff.

The default permissions here are a bit wide-open, which may be troubling, but
otherwise things are fine:

> grep sda /proc/mounts
/dev/sda1 /mnt fuse rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,allow_other 0 0

Other than that missing dependency on fuse, I'd say everything is fine.  I'll go
ahead and approve this and you can add it if you do decide to check this in.
