Petr: the "right way" these days would be to use HAL and DBUS to receive
notification of device additions and removals.  HAL underlies
functionality in GNOME and is likely to remain for a long time.

On the other hand, I think it is the responsibility of the distribution
to insulate the users from the whims of the upstream developers.  Just
because Mr. Kroah-Hartman decides that usbfs is "deprecated" doesn't
mean Ubuntu should drop it without careful consideration.
