Ahh, now I remember. Pmount isn't an AUTOmounter, you still must tell
it which device to mount. It doesn't mount the second you plug in your
thumb drive.

Therefore: pmount, when combined with the inotifywait automounters
we've all made, should be perfect.

Those pmount automounter commands should run as the user who plugs in
the thumb, so rather than running straight from the init, they should
probably run when you log in, and if there's already a copy running
when you log in, it does nothing.
