Mounts are also embedded into the user interface, rather than in the unix mount system, which means that the shares are not accessible for non-gui programs, for instance, I like to script most thing I do often, however, there is no way for scripts to get a hold of a drive that is mounted through the gui mount system (kde and gnome).This is not true, in case of gnome you can access everything mounted by nautilus / gvfs by accessing ~/.gvfs works with ANY app.
this, however I have noticed the mounts, when running the mount command, however it is not
clear if the names remain consistent.
And why make the mounts hidden ? ( leading . hides the directory), seems highly illogical approach.
