Also note that some not-so-crappy hardware may be affected.  Like the USB
drives (like tha small keychain ones) or cameras or whatnot.  Anything
hot-unplugable actually.  If the user unplugs the drive from the socket,
it's again too late to flush buffers.

On the other hand if supermount is used, then to nautilus this looks really
like things that we can have sort of mounted all the time ...
