This was exactly my point. Normal users aren't supposed to specify a
random directory. Mounting below /media/<label> is a fixed part in
A compromise would be to read the mount prefix from a local
configuration file /etc/pmountrc or whatever, but fail to see why one
should bother about changing it in the first place? There is a good
reason to follow the FHS, and e. g. Gnome treats /media specially to
provide better support for removable devices.
