I personally like the idea of removing the dynamically controlled
mountpoint from /etc/fstab completely. autofs controlled mountpoints
already don't use fstab so its not like moving hal facilitated mounts
out of fstab sets a new precedent.  If the non-fstab future can be
encoded into desktop ui.. im sure it can be encoded into some sort of
cli tool for cli usage to interact with hal in a similar way.
