Strong disagreement. 

You can use gnome-mount and/or mount(1) - they work just fine and
gnome-mount will (at least in the future) do so much more than we could
ever do with the fstab-sync approach. KDE also got some stuff for this
but I don't follow KDE development very closely, sorry. 

You can also use dbus-send in conjunction with hal-find-by-property...
it's not exactly rocket science

        [davidz daxter ~]$ dbus-send --system --dest=org.freedesktop.Hal --print-reply /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/volume_uuid_43F1_517C org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.Unmount array:string:
        method return sender=:1.2 -> dest=:1.62
         uint32 0
        [davidz daxter ~]$ dbus-send --system --dest=org.freedesktop.Hal --print-reply /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/volume_uuid_43F1_517C org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.Mount string: string: array:string:
        method return sender=:1.2 -> dest=:1.65
         uint32 0
        
Seriously, if someone really cared about this they would sit down and
write two 20-lines shell script so you could do 'hal-mount /dev/sda1'
and 'hal-umount /dev/sda1'. I'm really tired of people complaining
without doing.

If you think it's necessary.. feel free to add it.
