Of course it "works". I pretty well know how to write a shell script.

The problem is that this differs from the user interface of 
other devices, e.g. floppy or cdrom. And it does not show whether
the device is mounted or not (=change the icon). 

Would be much better to extend the functionality of the desktop
to allow arbitrary commands to be run before/after
