mount command absurdly verbose?

Does anyone agree with me that the mount command
(when used simply to get information)
has become absurdly verbose?

I only use this command to determine
what hard disks are mounted.
Now I have to wade through large tracts of information
that make no sense to me, to find the few lines about hard disks.

Is there any way of getting the information one used to get,
short of saying something like "mount | grep sd"?

I think this change already took place in Fedora-15.
