Bug Description

udisks 1.x and libgdu are both obsolete. They were replaced by udisk2 and libudisks2-dev. usb-creator needs to be ported to the new API. It should be fairly straightforward, as the concept is pretty much the same.

It should be noted that this isn't just a backend issue. There are a couple of user visible weirdnesses as a result:

1) USB sticks mounted by usb-creator show up at /media/<deviceuuid> not /media/<user>/<deviceuuid> like removable media generally does in raring

2) Attempting to unmount via the Unity launcher shows a spurious authentication prompt for "unmounting a device mounted by a different user", presumably because udisks 1 and udisks 2 don't talk to each other.
