Hello Vladimir,

this feature (automaount as root via udev) was intended for the experienced
user. The easy (un)plugging of storage like usb-sticks and similar is handled
via hal and the desktop.

Mounting via should make usage of shared storage devices (which do not
just belong to one person). E.g. external disks as backup medium or music/film
If such devices are mounted rw, then you should normally not just unplug them.
I expected that you first unmount them manually. If mounted ro you can of
course just unplug them with little possible damage (just access time of the
files could be wrong and of the journal of reiserfs or ext3).

On the other hand if it was already unplugged it is to late to do anything else
except unmounting it if not already happened.

I guess i will add it.
