About the only thing I use a GUI file manager for is to manage removeable media (flash drives, usb drives, CD ROMS...). It would be nice if there was support for mount/eject/unumount so that vifm could detect when removable media has been connected and then it could mount it and open the associated directory and then have the capability to unmount/eject the media when I was done with it.

    I'm not sure how to implement this, it might be somewhat complicated because of things like PolicyKit and D-Bus in modern versions of GNU/Linux. Anyway, I can at least check what would it take to implement this, it might be easier than it seems to me.

    Look at the gvfs command-line utilities (gvfs-mount). Might be an easy solution.
