IMO this is even unnecessary since we will most likely set the drives to
be mounted, but not browsed when inserted. See "Automatic launching of
programs for removable media/connected devices." thread.
So you can manage the drives through Nautilus. Just not the way you
_personally_ like it. :) I actually cant remember any screenshots with
that applet or people mentioning using it. I had to look it up. :)
So I guess the I should say that the panel for the most part is set, but
the desktop icons I'm iffy on. I think I'm leaning toward no icons since
everything can be done through Nautilus. Maybe no volumes? Just
"Computer, Home and Trash"?
I'm gonna hush for a bit and let others chime in.
