BTW, can we get rid of this concept at all? As far as I understand this
situation exists only because of cached write that causes progress bars
and other visual indications to end before the actual process ends. I
believe that switching off write cache for removable drives will greatly
reduce chances for the user to mess things up by unplugging a drive. Or
am I wrong?
