Fwiw, gnome-vfs 2.5 has code to deal with "volumes" and "drives" which
provides information about mounted/mountable devices, as well as
notification when such a device is (un)mounted.

One issue with Rhythmbox and removable medias currently is that as soon
as you start playing a file on such a media, you cannot easily unmount
this media because rhythmbox only knows how to pause a song, which keeps
the file opened, and thus prevents you from unmounting. I started to add
a "removable" property to RBSource this week-end, and I wanted to add an
"eject" context menu entry to the sources which are marked as removable,
but I just couldn't figure out how to add an optional menu entry to a
context menu generated with bonoboui. Any help here is welcome ;)
