Bug Description

As started here allready:

The requirements are:
- to have a non standard client on mount
- to have a non standard client on unmount
- to provide the mountpoint to this clients
To specify these on command line of udisks-automounter

Standard array of apps should not be checked anymore if this options are specified.

proof of concept: http://pastebin.com/qRDgDi5P (will be reqorked)

Like that and started with ck-launch-session (to mount as different systemuser), the udisk-automounter can be used for HTPC environment like http://www.yavdr.org :)

I will rework what i have done (which did not had the intention to share it) and provide a patch here once done.

I also tried to put an umount-all, for safe remove, together. This kind of works(it detects the right device) - but doesn't umount :/

Sorry, I didn't see this patch in time. I do like the idea of being able to specify a custom --mount command, if the builtin list doesn't suffice. However, I don't buy the usefulness of --unmount. At the time when this is called, the entire device already went away, so there's little you can do about the device/mount still. What's your use case here?

However, this patch is quite hard to review and apply, as the patch makes a lot of unnecessary whitespace changes. Perhaps you can clean it up a little in that regard?

Perhaps you can re-do this to only add the --mount option, and I'll get that in separately?
