I'm suggesting the integration of the desktop to easily create and make use
of the filesystem, because it's possible for a floppy disk to be formatted
with UDF, as well as HD and Flash Disks, Currently, udftools must be grabbed
from the repository to be able to create udf filesystems, and mounting a UDF
disk must require root priviledges to gain read+write permissions. The
technology is not yet totally accessible for the users,
