TODO - fusermount

Bug Description

Hey all.

I saw your TODO entry wrt fusermount, and would like to help you out.

There is a package in the Ubuntu Universe named fuseiso. You use it like this:

$ fuseiso /path/to/image.iso /path/to/mount/point

and bang, it gets mounted.

A caveat: You will need to write code that asks the user for permission to use fuseiso **and other FUSE programs** (because you will need to use a command, as seen below, to give permission). You might want to warn the user on the possible security implications of this. Of course, you do not need to ask permissiion if you continue requiring the user to type in their password upon clicking on gISOMount, which in my opinion has grave security implications.

# usermod -a -G fuse <username>
