Wasn't hal supposed to be policy free ;). If i'm correct the should_mount policy
item decides whether or not fstab-sync makes an entry in fstab or is there a
deeper meaning ? 

For debian we use a little script in dev.d to lazy unmount volumes (hal doesn't
run as root). Basically if the device disappears, there is no use in keeping it
mounted right?

  Sjoerd, who is just wondering why stuff is being done that way now :)
