Latest upstream should address this, as we no longer block removable devices in a udev rule at all. Instead, we block only ide and ata devices that are not removable by default - what we call "Internal disks". USB disks, wether removable or not, should no longer be blocked by default.

This will no doubt make it into Jaunty. Not sure if/when a backport to Intrepid is planned.
