Yes, I was thinking data. I don't see people carrying around software
that much. But if they do, I find the idea of things automatically
apearing in the $PATH when (user-)mounted slightly dangerous. If I mount
stuff (semi-)manually, I know the location and can be bothered to
explictly invoke something from there.

I don't really see the connection to AppDirs. How do they relate to it?
FWIW I think things have to be automagically available mainly for
point-n-click users. There $PATH is not that relevant. But I do think
these users can understand that their apps (or AppDirs) appear in the
same place as their data when they mount them similarly.
