No, its just a small bit of shared code between the two. All it is is the 
AutomounterSettings class, which handles the logic to determine if a device 
should be automounted, saving settings, loading them, etc. Its one tiny class, 
and I didn't think it would be worth it to have an extra .so laying around on 
the system.
