Seriously, this isn't the case with the normal gnome automounting of usb
devices.  I've just tried uninstalling autofs and it merrily continues
working.  I've not poked under the skin of gnome to know what actually goes
on, but figured udev's involved at some stage along with dbus.  udisks seems
to support that logic, but I really don't know the specifics.
