There is. It's called udev. You can download it from here

It's not really my fault GARNOME can't handle this. Sorry. I'm not going
to carry extremely security sensitive code (that introduces attack
vectors like root exploits via USB keys) with all the fun that entails
like coordinated releases, embargo fun and what not, just because
GARNOME lacks a feature. 

I hope you realize what a silly thing you are asking me to do.

Release team: Please apply cluebat. Thanks.
