FYI, I think how this is handled in KDE is mostly through a module
called kded_mediamanager.  The source seems to use HAL as well as poll
fstab.  All of this stuff is in kdebase/kioslave/media.  There's also
a module called kded_medianotifier that seems to be the dialog you get
as a user.  There's also a binary called kio_media_mounthelper.  I'm
not sure how this fits into the equation.
