Yes, this would be the biggest problem I see. We should investigate and
compare how the various distributions handle removeable media. As far as I
know, SuSE/Novell uses submount to manage removeable media, which could make
things even trickier.

I have another question for you. You mentioned that you tested FiST with
hooking. How did it work. Several months ago I did a bunch of tests with it
and had a lot of stability and performance problems. How was your experience?
