Switch to udisks2 results in new mount location for USB drives

The new version (4.11) of libsolid4 recommends udisks2, which is a change from previous versions of libsolid4 that recommended the older udisks. The most visible difference is that USB drives are now mounted under /media/$USER rather than /media.

It's causing some confusion; see:

In the first post, I documented a udev rule that restores prior behavior (originally found in http://askubuntu.com/questions/214646/). Since the 4.11 update has landed mid-cycle, does it make sense to default to the previous behavior since that's what so many Kubuntu users are accustomed to?
