Absolutely not nice, and an argument against systemd.

Not so!
The generator is a 'backwards compatibility' compromise.
if you have up on that backwards comparability and worked exclusively with
properly written mount unit files then you would have proper control and control
over aspects that you currently don't have at the moment since the generator
produces all mounts according to a simplistic standardized template as it parses
the /etc/fstab.

That systemd keeps monitoring the state of the system, including what is
mounted, and tries to keep it stable, is, to my mind, a Good Thing.

As far as systemd is concerned, you were trying to destabilise the system by
taking away a mounted file system without telling it, without saying that it
should now be released.

The problem is the mount command.
As I've said previously, the suite of what makes up systemd is only advancing as
fast as matters can be coded and ratified.

Right now, the 'umount' command *OUGHT* to check to see if the FS is managed by
systemd and it it is send a D-Bus message to systemd telling it to unmount.

Quite possibly the 'mount' command might dynamically generate a unit file and
tell systemd to mount it accordingly.

Richard, what do you think?
