Wouldn't enabling the mounter applet by default do the same and be
easier to disable by advanced users who just don't want it there? The
notification area is supposed to have as few icons as possible, and mine
is already overpopulated with nm-applet and tomboy sitting there all

Anyway, the initial problem with the eject buttons on the panel was that
they'd be difficult to reach without the mouse... is reaching a
notification area icon any easier?
