[opensuse-factory] Should implement systemwide automounting

Since hal was deprecated each desktop tries to handle automounting itself.
Where hal automatically mounted any removable devices, now each desktop does it
in a separate and unique way and some desktops do not do at all.

As Greg advises doing automounting through udev rules a bad idea.

Without udev rules only a separate resident daemon can do automounting.
udisks-glue was suggested in this context but it requites an extensive config
(an example can be seen here:
The config file is not shipped with udisks-glue and no free third-party one is

The config still calls udisks command-line utility that is dependent on udisks
version (incompatible
with udisks2).

So what a solution is there foe USB and CD drives automounting? Should it
remain a desktop-specific issue?
