I just tested to use it in gnome-disks from gnome-disk-utility-3.16.0,
and it asks me for root password even for shortname=lower. If I enter
it, the configuration for the particular USB stick is saved to

/mnt/scsi-SSanDisk_Cruzer_Glide_2004445172250A5D21C9-part1 auto 
nosuid,nodev,nofail,noauto,x-gvfs-show,shortname=lower 0 0

It is wrong because options should be picked by nautilus and passed to
udisks2 mount.

There is a chance to rewrite gnome-disks to use modified udisks and
nautilus will not need change.

(Or keep udisks daemon unchanged and move this code to client side
nautilus and Thunar or udisks library.)
