I agree up to a point... however, such a feature would make unmounting
easier even for people unaware of the context menu (which could be added
to the help anyway).
Besides, are context menus all that undiscoverable? Windows has them
too, so most newbees should be used to them by now, I guess. I lack any
real data, I have to admit.
As for ctrl+l, do you think it should be removed or was it worth the
complaints in the end?

I understand that. Can you think of any satisfactory solution to
implement the eject buttons?
