Dont know what the original commenter disliked about the applet but I
found it annoying that the icons are set to be generic looking drives
("mystery meat") to start with, even though each button is assigned to
specific device type.  Only when the drive is mounted change to look like
CD/USB/Floppy etc and that little bit of extra guesswork/memorisation is
something I could do without.

That is something that might be worth fixing.  The drive mount applet
gets all the drive images from gnome-vfs (using
gnome_vfs_drive_get_icon and gnome_vfs_volume_get_icon).  If gnome-vfs
is changed to provide better icons for unmounted drives/volumes, that
will fix their display in the applet and Nautilus.
